Although our mission is simple — advocating for the best interests of children is our only interest — success in fulfilling it would not be possible without the generous support and combined resources of our volunteers, community supporters and staff.
As volunteers move out of the area or have other life events that preclude them from accepting new cases, we must continually recruit and share our mission with the community. Over the past five days, Volunteer Recruiter Sara Blumenthal has been busy doing just that.
She first participated at the Leon County Safety Fair hosted by Leon County Emergency Medical Services at Governor's Square Mall on Saturday, April 5, 2014. Alongside CPR demonstrations, safety activities and tours of first responder vehicles, Blumenthal staffed our information table where people could learn about our program, ask questions and get applications to volunteer.
Then during last Tuesday's Children's Week events at the Capitol, Blumenthal had an opportunity to talk with Tallahassee Democrat reporter Jeff Burlew.
During a three minute interview, Blumenthal talks about our program and highlights current issues before the legislature this session such as the Keys to Independence Act. You can watch the video on the Democrat website: "Power Players Talk Children's Issues".
Thank you to Leon County EMS, the Tallahassee Democrat and of course Sara Blumenthal!
