UNICEF at UWF Partner with GAL to Give Our Kids an Empowering, Fun Afternoon

Last Saturday was a day filled with pampering for 12 of our Circuit 1 GAL kids. The University of West Florida’s UNICEF Chapter sponsored a party with food, games, gifts, and a screening of the Disney movie Moana. Eight members gave individualized attention to each of the children present.

We love when our community supports our program. Here in Circuit 1 we are seeing everyday how our communities have the backs of our volunteers and staff as we raise up the voice of the child and I can’t wait to share the stories of how they are making a difference.
