There are about 19,000 children in foster care in Florida and too often when a child moves from one home to another their belongings are carried in a trash bag.
CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, September 13, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dawn Shannon’s Intuition Salon & Spa announced this week the launch of a drive to collect suitcases for foster children in the Tampa Bay area. Donations can be dropped off at both the Clearwater and St. Petersburg Intuition Salon & Spa locations between now and Christmas during business hours. The suitcases will be donated to the Pinellas County Foster & Adoptive Parent Association (PCFAPA), which strives to provide quality training, support and activities for foster and adoptive families.
Joining forces with other local business, Intuition Salon and Spa hopes to collect enough suitcases to meet the needs to the foster children in the area and is happy to be supporting the PCFAPA.
There are about 19,000 children in foster care in Florida and all too often when a child is moved from one home to another, whatever personal belongings they have are carried in a trash bag.
“As a mother, when I learned that these children didn’t have anything to carry with them when they moved it broke my heart and I knew I needed to do something to help,” said Dawn Shannon, owner of Intuition Salon & Spa.
As a past nominee of the Tampa Bay Business Journal’s Corporate Philanthropy Award, Shannon has been an active supporter of programs serving children for the past 16 years. Whether it is collecting toys for the holidays, helping to send an impoverished young woman in Honduras to beauty school so she can help support her family when she graduates or working with local youth employment programs; giving back to the community is simply how Dawn Shannon chooses to live her life.
Suitcases can be dropped off and donations can be made on Monday between 11am and 7pm and Tuesday through Saturday from 8am until 8pm at either 16 N. Fort Harrison Ave. in Clearwater, FL (727-443-2927) or 2053 Central Ave. St. Petersburg, FL (727-322-3802).
