The Amazing Give 2022

April 21st @ 7:00 am - 7:00 pm

The Amazing Give is a community wide giving day focusing on non-profits in North Central Florida. During The Amazing Give, Partnership for Strong Families fundraises for our normalcy fund, this offers our youth in foster care the opportunity to have typical childhood experiences and resources they may not otherwise have the money to experience (think of family bonding trips with caregivers, a cap and gown for graduation, summer camps, money to help them get their drivers license and more!).

Thank you to our Amazing sponsors:

Steven A Bagen & Associates PA

Tina Kirkpatrick, REALTOR®

Pepine Realty

Join us for a fundraiser at local favorite, Dick Mondell’s on April 20th starting at 7 PM through April 21st until close! Dick Mondell’s will be donating all proceeds from drink sales to our normalcy fund for youth in foster care. We can’t wait to see you there!

Each year, we hold a donation drive to collect school supplies for the children in our care. The purpose of our Back to School Drive is to ensure each child is sent into the new school year ready for success. What makes our donation drive truly special is that we make sure each child has everything they need – from their personalized school supply-list down to the correct color or style of folders.

An effort like the Back to School Drive thrives due to the generous support of the community we serve and partners like you. If you would like to contribute, there are different ways you can do so, including:

Monetary Donations

Just $25 sends a child to school prepared with the supplies they need. If you would like to contribute financially to the Back to School Drive, click on the donate button below.

Child abuse is preventable
We can help change the lives of many children and teens.

A hallmark of PSF’s system of care is our belief that child abuse is preventable. We have found that by providing resources and supports to families in need on the front end, many can avoid reaching the crises that lead to formal child welfare involvement functions.

Monetary Donations

Monetary donations throughout the year are a huge help to the children we serve. We accept donations by check, which can be mailed to our office or through the PayPal link here.

The next time you make a purchase on Amazon, please consider using AmazonSmile and selecting Partnership for Strong Families as the receiving organization.
