I really don't know where to begin. I have been involved with many non-profit charities, however, this one has been the life changing experience. I thought I was a go getter, and non-stop energy, but, Josephine Pulido Schaaf has completely surpassed me, with her 100% devotion, enthusiasm, always on the go, with nothing stopping her, as the children in Tampa Bay keeps her driven. She will not take no for an answer, when it comes to the children of need. I have never been involved as a volunteer (which I have been involved with charities since 1984), that Is so organized, full of passion, and to know that everything that we work so hard for is going to our future...The children of our future. I am honored and feel privileged to be part of this team!!! If you are not involved with Bacchus Charity, I highly suggest that you do... Not only do I go to bed at night knowing that I made a difference in our future, but I also go to bed at night, Thanking God that our world is a better place, because of Bacchus Charity.

I have been a volunteer of Bacchus since the very beginning. Yes, it is a relatively new charity foundation but what an impact it made on so many lives! The founder and volunteers work relentlessly throughout the year helping other local charities reached their goal in fund raising. Bacchus also teamed up with other foundations to host school supplies, toys, and foods drives. Supporting and giving back to the community is what Bacchus does! I am honored to be a part of such a great team!

This is a great group of volunteers. They are all so compassionate and generous with their time. They truly care about bettering the community. I don't think I've ever had so much fun volunteering before. This group is like a family and that's what put Bacchus in a league of their own.

From the inception of Bacchus for Charity, I have had the pleasure to volunteer for Bacchus. The Founder of Bacchus has so much enthusiasm and desire to help kids it is catching for all that volunteer. The main focus has been for kids in sports and education. The first charity Bacchus helped get started has been so successful taking kids off the streets by teaching them sports and tutoring with their classes. A great number of these kids have received scholarships to college. Bacchus helped send kids involved with boxing to the Olympic tryouts. Bacchus holds drives for school supplies, sports equipment, toys for disadvantaged kids, turkey drive for the Children's home and support other charities in their drives. Also helped college students in sports through a rough time to give them the boost needed to stay in school. The events to support the projects are always entertaining and fun, all enjoy their time. As I watch Bacchus slowly become recognized and grow, makes happy to know that there will so many other kids get a hand up in their journey to becoming productive adults. Love giving back and this is a great charity.

Bacchus has a clear mission and purpose....to help, enrich, and strengthen the lives of some of the most vulnerable children in our community. The charity's President, Josephine Schaaf, is dedicated to stewardship, devoted to Bacchus and its end goals, and has an incredibly unique and priceless ability to connect people whose lives would have otherwise never crossed. Her enthusiasm is...well....infectious! I am grateful for the opportunity to work with this charity and each and every one of its members.

By giving children access to group physical activity, such as organized sports, Bacchus is providing a solid and valuable foundation to the mental and physical development to children. It's no secret that when you do this you are more likely to give them a positive and productive course towards success. Keep up the great work!

Bacchus is a great organization that gives back to so many local nonprofits. Small nonprofits don't have the funding or personnel to put together a lot of fundraisers without cutting into their time to work on their missions. As the Executive Director of Wheelchairs 4 Kids I can attest that it is very difficult to raise funds and take care of the kids. That is where an organization like Bacchus makes such a difference. They allow us to spend our time working with families, physical therapists, equipment providers, contractors, etc. to ensure that we are getting the best equipment and home modifications for our families while they work hard on fundraising efforts. They are amazing!

I've had the honor of working with Bacchus For Charity for about three years now. I've witnessed it first hand impact the lives of many kids whom otherwise, had educational disadvantages. Bacchus gives these kids the opportunity to strive for their goals and become successful in their communities.
I am proud to be a volunteer and sponsor.

This group has a great synergy of people working together towards a bigger purpose. They also know how to have fun. Most of all, I truly love making a difference in another person's life. That's worth more than any material item.

After spending some time with other worthy charities (All Children's Hospital Guild Tampa Branch) I decided to concentrate my efforts on working with Bacchus Foundation. I did this because i see the far reaching value of putting on events for under-publicized but established charities already functioning in the community. Several of these charities are headed by locally known and loved local celebrities who are very good at what they do and are excellent at serving their populations but aren't so good at raising funds and marketing what they do. Bacchus IS good at marketing and events thus creating interest and awareness of the charities and what they do and bringing their need for funds to the attention of the public. If not for Bacchus these charities would have to pay to market themselves out of the limited funds they do have.

I have worked with this organization for over 2 years and I've watched them send children who are less fortunate to schools to get educated. Educating our children does more for our community than words can say.
