A recent $3,400 donation from the Dick Pope/Polk County Chapter of the Florida Public Relations Association, proceeds from the third annual Carillon Classic 5K, will ensure more kids get the help they need today and hope for tomorrow.
“We’re very appreciative to FPRA for all their hard work,” said Glenn Parkinson, shelter director for the George W. Harris Jr. Runaway and Youth Crisis Shelter in Bartow. “It’s great to see families spending time with their kids in nature at Bok Tower Gardens, but the 5K is about taking care of the children. We’ll be able to repair the air conditioning and take care of the kids the best way we can.”
