Aquarius Group Home Builds a New Way to Spend Playtime
Thanks to two groups of Devereux supporters, the children who live at Aquarius Group Home in Palm Bay have a playground all their own!
An entire community in Barefoot Bay, spearheaded by Dorothy Buchmann, comes together every year in support of Devereux. For the last 5 years they have conducted a golf tournament (among other fundraisers) specifically to assist with playground building and other program needs. . Due to the success of this tournament they were able to provide more than half the needed funding for playground purchase.
Determined to provide a playground at Aquarius, along with their extensive monthly donations to the children and the home, Christina Rosum was leading her group (Angels of Mercy) to provide monetary donations and a reduced-cost in equipment from playground vendor PlayLofts. At the conclusion of this campaign they also provided a hand designed and crafted flag to affix to this special project.
Devereux is very grateful to all our volunteers and volunteer groups, but especially proud of these two separate and distinct groups working together in different parts of the County to come together in spirit and provide for our children’s recreational and therapeutic needs.
Thank you for all that you do!
