THE CHILDREN OF FORT PIERCE

GET BIG EARLY CHRISTMAS GIFT FROM AN ANGEL

 

For the past 9 years, the participants of Frontline For Kds, Inc., the community based after school program here in Fort Pierce have enjoyed a strong partnership with the St. Lucie School District. The program enjoyed strong support from the likes of: Dr. Bill Vogel, former school Superintendent, Mrs. Queen Townsend, Delores Hogan Johnson and Mrs. Peggy Anderson, former Principal of Lincoln Park Academy.

However, at the end of 2007, the program had to be relocated from Lincoln Park Academy, where it has called home for 7 years. Space became an issue at the Haitian United Methodist Church, where the program had found a temporary home. In fact, the program had to move twice within a year. In March of 2008, Mrs. Sheryl Suggs came to the rescue. She offered the program a place at 2007 Orange Avenue.

 


While the program made do with what was available to them, the place was way too small for 100 kids. The place was so small that most things and activities were done by shifts or in segments.



Then Comes an Angel!

One afternoon, an Angel walks in the building. He sat and observed activities for a while and said: "this is ridiculous, I can't believe that this town can't find a place for all these kids."

A day later he came back and pledged to find a place for the program because he liked the concept and the success the program had enjoyed with very little fan fare. On September 24, 2009. A key to a 6000sqft. building was handed over to Mr. Jerome Gayman, Executive Director.

When the news hit the program, many of the kids thought it was a practical joke!

YES, we have come from a 1300 sqft. to a 6000-plus sqft. What a year!

YES, WE BELIEVE THERE IS A SANTA AFTER ALL!
