Members of the New Port Richey Parks and Recreation Youth Advisory Board,  Jack McMahon, Emily Ratliff, Tanner Smith and Alex Caravona, toured the Pasco Kids First Children’s Advocacy Center while bringing donations to support other kids in need. The group generously donated $500 in snacks and Meals Ready to Eat packages and $400 in toys as one of their community outreach project. “We were thrilled to receive this donation as we often have kids who come in after school for their therapy appointments and their stomachs are rumbling. These snacks will help tie them over until dinner time and allow them to better focus during their counseling sessions.,” said Becky Bennett, Director of Development of Pasco Kids First. The Youth Advisory group participate in a variety of community services events as well as learn leadership skills such as public speaking, proper hand shakes and good eye contact.
