This past summer the five Pasco County Tax Collector Offices accepted donations on behalf of the Boys & Girls Club of Tampa Bay. The goal of the Boys & Girls Club is to help young people reach their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring members of their community. A vast majority of participants come from single-parent homes who live at or below the poverty level. The Boys & Girls Club provides not only a safe environment for youth to socialize, even more importantly it assists in mentoring students who need academic assistance to succeed in school and ultimately in life.
“Our generous customers donated over $4,500 to the Boys & Girls Club of Tampa Bay to raise money to help the at-risk and other children in need of assistance,” comments Tax Collector Mike Fasano. “I would like to thank everyone who dug deep to help this very important program grow and be able to serve more young people in our community. Many thanks!”
“We are grateful to Pasco County Tax Collector, Mike Fasano, for allowing us to have a platform to reach our friends in Pasco County and for all of you who donated to our cause,” comments Terry Carter, CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay. “Since our founding in 1926, we have been on a mission to enable all youth to reach their full potential as productive, responsible, caring citizens. Your support is changing the lives of children in our community.”
