SFS Giving Back To The Community and Beyond
Little Treasurers – Pediatric Palliative Care Program
Pediatric Hospice Care Program – A specialized pediatric team enhances the quality of life for children with a terminal diagnosis who have the life expectancy of six months or less.
Partners in Care – Together For Kids (PIC-TFK) -Offers specialized palliative care support services for chronically ill children and adolescents up to the age of 21. Treasure Coast Hospice provides these services in collaboration with our local Children’s Medical Services office.
Teddy Bears For Kids, Inc. – “Give a child a new friend”. A charity that gives new stuffed Teddy Bears to children in need. In conjunction with the Florida Society of Enrolled Agents (FSEA) the stuffed animals are collected by the 800+ members and brought to the annual convention in June of each year. Last year over 800 bears were collected.
The bears are then taken back to local communities and distributed to hospitals, Kids in Distress, rehab centers or to any organization for children in need. Help to put a smile on a child’s face.
SFS takes back as many bags as will fit in the SUV and promptly brings them to the Treasure Coast Hospice. We appreciate any donation of new bEArs or a cash donation to purchase the animals. For your convenince, both SFS offices are a drop off point for bears or donations. Feel free to drop by and “Help us help a child who needs a new friend”.
