Florida DOT Class #79 Gives Back to the Community at the Orlando Union Rescue Mission
D.A.R.E. Florida Coordinator Jay Best organized the Thursday DOT graduation to be held at the Orlando Mission rather than at a hotel or a restaurant. A fine example of reaching out and connecting to the community.
Florida DOT Class #79 served over 200 meals to homeless families in the Central Florida area. Since 1948, the Orlando Union Rescue Mission’s purpose is to bring the hungry, hurting and homeless families to a new life, new goals and a new future in Christ. All 19 members of Florida DOT #79 donated their time on August 18th, 2016 after class to give back to the community, and to also teach a D.A.R.E. lesson to homeless children who are often forgotten. The Event was organized by Florida Coordinator Jay Best, with the assistance of the DOT Mentor staff.
