Pace Center for Girls Helps with Bahama Relief Efforts
After hearing about the devastation caused by Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas, youth from Pace Center for Girls Treasure Coast decided to take action. Efforts led by the Pace Girls Leadership Council included the research and selection of how Pace girls could help. They decided to join the relief efforts sponsored by a local community organization, Missionary Flight International in Fort Pierce.
On September 24th, a group of 10 girls helped sort, package and prepare clothing and other donated items for travel to the Bahamas to aid in recovery. “I learned how important it is to give back and be a leader through our Spirited Girls class,” stated Andrea, a Pace Center for Girls volunteer.
Spirited Girls is a life management class offered at Pace Center for Girls that teaches girls how to better navigate real life, tackling topics such as self-esteem, conflict resolution, personal grooming, relationship- building and much more.
“It makes me proud that the girls have been intentional about living the Pace culture of caring by finding opportunities to serve both locally and internationally,” exclaimed Ashley Gilbert, Social Service Coordinator for Pace.
