Miami Bridge Alumni Hosts Grounds Beautification at Miami Bridge Homestead Thanks to FIU Grant
A former foster child who grew up in the “system,” Alecia Rodriguez returned to Miami Bridge, where she once frequented to help beautify the grounds with the help of her nonprofit, Sadie’s Kids, along with volunteers from local South Florida organizations. The event took place at our Homestead campus on Saturday, February 16.
The Miami Bridge grounds beautification project was funded by Florida International University’s (FIU) Global Civic Engagement Mini Grant in partnership with Sadie’s Kids; Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources and Related Science of South Florida (MANRRS SoFlo); and The Mission Continues. Volunteers, along with kids being served by Miami Bridge, spent the day planting trees, clearing debris and restoring the outdoor area of the youth shelter.
THANK YOU TO ALECIA AND ALL THE VOLUNTEERS INVOLVED FOR BEAUTIFYING OUR HOMESTEAD CAMPUS!
