Donation to Red Cross benefits Puerto Rico recovery efforts
PRSA members and guests raised $244 during the 50/50 raffle at our Splitsville member social this month to fund a donation for Hurricane Maria recovery efforts in Puerto Rico. A special thank-you goes to Laura Lord-Blackwell, APR, for donating back her raffle winnings, too! The contribution was sent directly to the American Red Cross in their recovery efforts. Learn more about how the funds will benefit those in Puerto Rico.
Positive messages for Mental Health Association
During their November board meeting, PRSA Orlando Board of Directors shared in an activity by creating “oranges” with positive messages written on them to brighten people’s day. On the back of each orange had a mental health resource on it. They were passed out during the “Orange You Happy” Suicide Awareness Campaign, hosted by the Mental Health Association of Central Florida.
Volunteers at Ronald McDonald House
PRSA Orlando members volunteered this month at the Ronald McDonald House in Central Florida. The group donated and assembled snack kits for the families with handmade cards from PRSA Orlando, and did some light cleaning around the house to prep for the holidays.
