United Way donates $2,000 to Take Stock

by: Emily Blackwood News Editor

The Take Stock in Children Program is administered by the FUTURES Foundation for Volusia County Schools. 

In the spirit of this giving season, the United Way’s Women’s Initiative presented a $2,000 check Dec. 16 to the local Take Stock In Children Program.

TSIC Program Coordinator Sheila Rees and FUTURES Executive Director Cynthia Perrick Ramirez accepted the check from United Way’s Assistant Director of Resource Development Courtney Edgcomb and Women’s Initiative Board Co-Chairs Sabria Tabaku and Jessica Fox.

“This is our first Women’s Initiative grant funding, and we greatly appreciate this support for our TSIC scholarship and mentoring program,” said Rees. “We look forward to working with the Women’s Initiative in the future. This generous donation shall be matched dollar for dollar through the Stanley G. Tate Florida Prepaid Foundation’s STARS Scholarship Program when we purchase scholarships this spring for our incoming freshmen.”

TSIC is a college tuition scholarship program for low-income, at-risk students. For Volusia County public school students, FUTURES Foundation for Volusia County Schools facilitates this statewide program.
