Review for Speak Up For Kids Of Palm Beach County Inc, West Palm Bch, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a Guardian ad Litem volunteer. We are referred to as GALS, and our job is to get to know the children and their parents and then to let the court know what is in the best interest of that child. Our partner in this endeavor is the fund raiser SPEAK UP FOR KIDS. Without their help and support we could never accomplish all the extra and special things we do for our kids. They help fund additional staff, so that we have enough people to do the job correctly. In addition they supply the little extras that mean so much to a child that has been removed from his family and feels totally alone. I have gone to them for the extra gift of the high school graduation ring, or scholarship money to send a young girl to a very special conference in Washington. When we have a child who would benefit by having riding lessons, art lessons, music lessons, or even the musical instrument that is not available by any other means. SPEAK UP FOR KIDS works continually raising enough money to make sure that the children who have been abused, neglected, or abandoned have what they need.
