The Florida Institute for Community Studies (FICS) is pleased to announce a grant from the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay, an organization focused on making a positive impact on the Tampa Bay region.
Our #Summer4Success youth are multicultural and resilient. They have learned that they need to express their voices to make change….they watch the news and yet, they know that their elders have to work and prioritize their survival. They decided to start using their voices publicly-and we have to be careful due to heat indexes off the charts
Given the huge spike overnight in COVID19 cases in our area, FICS is going to turn this CELEBRATION into a FUNDRAISER to help our families! At this moment, we intend to stay open this week as planned, feed our kids and families and run SpringBreak4Success without interruption.
The coronavirus or CoVid-19 is a very dangerous infection that has no cure or vaccine at present. FICS is committed to keeping our community and families safe, and for that reason we are following the World Health Organization’s recommendations (https://www.who.int/health-topics/coronavirus). Our goal is to maintain a calm approach towards the pandemic and PREVENT this disease, which can be life-threatening.
