As attendance at ALSO Youth is growing... so does the need to keep the center stocked with supplies and snacks.
During the months of November and December, SarasotaOUT.com is challenging YOU to gather snacks and supplies for ALSO Youth. This is a great opportunity for your team, your business, your family, anyone and everyone to do something good for our LGBTQ youth and give back to our community.
WHO IS ALSO YOUTH?
For over 25 years, ALSO Youth has provided outreach and a safe space drop-in center with weekly programming including peer support groups for the LGBTQ+ youth in Sarasota and Manatee counties. Through partnerships with local school districts and other youth-serving organizations, they strive every day to create an inclusive community where our youth can live, study, work and play without violence, fear, harassment or discrimination based on real or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Collect individually wrapped snacks and supplies to donate yourself or organize a group, business, or church to collect needed items and donate them as a team. You can print our flyer to hang at the location you'll be collecting. Once you have your donation ready, you can drop it off at the ALSO Youth center at 1470 Boulevard of the Arts, Sarasota, FL 34236. Please make sure to call 941- 951-2576 to make sure they are open and available to accept your donation.
