Coins for Kids
Orlando Orthopaedic Center Foundation’s “Coins for Kids” program partnered with BB&T of Central Florida this summer to help send local underprivileged kids and teens to summer sports camp. We’re proud to report that we were able to send almost 50 children to camp this year thanks to your donations! We were also able to enroll an additional 10 children in after school track, soccer and baseball programs.
Last Year’s Coins for Kids Program
Last year’s inaugural Coins for Kids campaign sent 46 children to summer camp thanks 100% in part to donations collected at the Orlando Orthopaedic Center offices.
“Thanks to hundreds of donations, both small and large, from patients, staff and various community supporters we’re able to send these kids to an affordable, fun sports camp where they’ll improve their skills on and off the field,” says Jennifer Taggart, director of the Orlando Orthopaedic Center Foundation. “We can’t thank our staff and patients enough for being behind this effort 100 percent from the beginning. Our sincerest hope is that the experiences, memories and skills the kids learn this July will create a positive, lasting impact on their lives for years to come.”
