THE STORY:

A Florida Outdoor Center (AFLOC) is in need of a vehicle to pickup the campers and to run summer camp and after school programs. We are providing scholarships for children who come from Title One Schools- these are kids that would not get the opportunity to learn how to kayak, SUP, or explore the parks, like St Sebastian River Preserve State Park, Sebastian Inlet State Park or the historic Pelican Island Wildlife Refuge. The program connects them to our land, our history and gives them skills that they can carry with them forever. The scholarship funds have come form the Wild Sebastian 100 and a partnership with Pelican Island Audubon Society. AFLOC had a Van secured to run the summer camp, but the deal fell thru in the last minute and now AFLOC is struggling to secure transportation for the almost sold out program. Buying or renting a van was not in the budget for this year so that's way we are running this fundraising campaign. Unfortunately summer camp starts in 1 week and we have no transportation. Also we just found out that the new trailer that we ordered is delayed in the building schedule and will not be done until July. We have found used school buses that we would convert into an Adventure Bus. By taking out most of the seats we would create a storage area in the back and be able to transport the kayaks or bikes in the rear of the bus and the campers in the front. With an Adventure Bus we would be set for summer camp and after school programs. We had plans for an adventure bus planed into for next year but it seams as if we need to go ahead with it now. Thank you for your time and support. Without you we will not be able to serve these children. The benefits of being active and outdoor are important and we see the children grow. Their problem solving skills increase, their confidence blooms and their connection to nature and community become strong. Please help us reach our goals and connect more children with nature.
