On behalf of Unity of the Keys, Reverend Daybree recently applied for a grant through the Community Foundation of the Florida Keys. The grant is called “Collaborating in Paradise for Good”. Eligible applicants were required to include a collaboration with another nonprofit or service-based organization. Our application was accepted and Unity was awarded $1,000.
Our non-profit collaboration is with local service-based thrift stores. We have distributed $10 Gift Vouchers to those in need. Recipients of the vouchers may use them to St Peter’s Thrift or Salvation Army Thrift Store to obtain clothing or household goods.
This is a perfect way for Unity of the Keys to help needy members of our community.
We are thrilled with the approval of this grant. It ties together several of the recommendations about community service that Unity of the Keys obtained from membership at our February meeting.
