Florida - On April 17, 2009 the Tampa Bay Rays Foundation awarded a total of $150,000 to 29 local nonprofit organizations, including Devereux Kids. The Rays Foundation is committed to supporting youth and educational programs throughout the Tampa Bay community. There to accept the generous check of $5,600 were Wendy Valley, Suzanne Nixon and Kimberly Miller. Rays players who contribute to the fund were also in attendance.

The funding was awarded in support of Girls Circle groups in the Sulphur Springs community of Tampa. The Girls Circle model is a structured support group for girls from 9-18 years of age. The purpose of Girls Circle is to encourage the development of strength, courage, confidence, honesty, and communication skills for girls. The goal is to enhance girls’ abilities so they are able to take full advantage of their talents, academic interests, career pursuits, and potential for healthy relationships.

Devereux Kids promotes positive youth development by supporting youth leadership and community activities. We provide opportunities for young people to give back to their communities by offering strength-based training curriculum models designed to encourage youth to connect and form relationships with each other.

Thank you Tampa Bay Rays Foundation for your support in helping our youth succeed!
