My name is Suzanne Santangelo and I’m with Centerstone, a non-profit behavioral health and addictions resource in Bradenton. Our clients include patients and their families throughout Manatee and Sarasota Counties and beyond, who come to us for in-patient or out-patient treatment.
I am reaching out to local scouts to let them know about an opportunity we have for volunteer hours. At our 2020 26thAvenue East facility, there is an outdoor area that is used by patients who are staying with us for treatment of substance misuse. At this time, the expansive yard is in great need of a make-over. From plantings to seating to recreation space, we are looking to make this space as therapeutic and relaxing as possible.
As I start to formulate a plan for transforming this space, I am checking with community partners to assess volunteer resources. This would make an exceptional Eagle Scout project or troop endeavor. I also plan to work with local businesses on donations of materials and supplies. I hope you find this type of project a good fit; however, if it is not appropriate for your scouts, I understand. I am new to Manatee County and appreciate any feedback you can provide.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
