The Safe Children Coalition is a community coalition blending available resources to assist abused and neglected children and their families in reaching permanency in a safe and stable environment.

TMR Sarasota raised $400 to help fund the purchase of the backpacks, with half raised through a 50/50 raffle with recycling.  TMR then matched the raffle funds raised. The TMR Sarasota also donated highlighters for each backpack, and donuts and coffee for volunteers at the backpack stuffing event. TMR-Sarasota-Backpack-Drive-supplies-photo-2TMR-Sarasota-Backpack-Drive-supplies-photo-3
