November 2022 PAY IT FORWARD - Pace-Giving Celebration

This month to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday we have partnered with Pace Center for Girls, Treasure Coast. Their annual, "Pace" Giving event was filled with a wonderful Thanksgiving meal as well as an afternoon of laughter and joy. These young ladies and staff were treated to a catered lunch from us here at Two Way Radio Gear, and it was an absolute pleasure. We not only learned more about Pace Center for Girls, but also learned about the young ladies that attend.

We are so thankful they allowed us to be apart of their "Pace" Giving and we hope the staff and young ladies enjoy their holiday. 

October 2022 PAY IT FORWARD - The TuTu Project Donation

October 2022 PAY IT FORWARD - The TuTu Project Donation

The TuTu Project began in 2003, due to Linda Carey's breast cancer diagnosis. Linda did beat her first battle with breast cancer, however 3 years later she would be diagnosed once more. During both battles Linda has had the support of her family, friends, and husband, Bob Carey. Bob has stated, "So many people in Linda’s life, myself included, have been in awe of the power, beauty, and spirit she carries with her, despite everything that’s going on within her." Therefore, inspired by his wife's strength Bob launched the TuTu project in 2006. He also published a novel entitled, "Ballerina" which captured anyone who was affected by breast cancer. Bob wanted to shed light on the support fighters and survivors of breast cancer need everyday. 

Their mission statement at The TuTu Project is to raise awareness and funds for both men and women as well as their families to help assist with the financial stresses that come alongside breast cancer diagnosis. Therefore, this month we have donated to this special organization. We know that the battle with breast cancer is a long and hard one, but please know we support you. We are so pleased for our ability to donate to this special organization, especially during breast cancer awareness month. To each and every fighter and survivor or breast cancer please know that you are not alone, and are supported.

For almost 20 years, parents, children, and schools have visited Jaycee Park Playground. From sliding down slides, to swinging on the swings, and climbing the monkey bars and playing tag, this park has seen it all. However, as time passes so does recreational material. Located in Fort Pierce, FL. Jaycee Park has nearly 200,000 visitors every year and after all of that play time, it's time for Jaycee Park to get a new design.

August 2022 PAY IT FORWARD - Treasure Coast Girls Coalition Croc's Donation

Two Way Radio Gear is pleased to share, that for the month of August we donated Crocs to the wonderful organization, Treasure Coast Girls Coalition. Located in Gifford, FL. Treasure Coast Girls Coalition, aims to help young ladies from the ages of 9-18 achieve their goals and fulfill their potential. Their mission is to encourage and empower these young ladies through STEM curriculum. And this program serves as a way to raise up a new generation of entrepreneurs, and leaders within the community. 

Therefore, we wanted to gift these young ladies with something just as unique and special as them. We donated 30 pairs of Crocs, so that each young lady may receive a pair, as well as jibbitz to personalize them into their own. Seeing each of those young ladies smiling was such a rewarding experience. And, we are so thankful that we can give back to our community in unimaginable ways. 

A kind message from Ms. Edwards, the Executive Director of Treasure Coast Girls Coalition, "Thanks so much for your kindness and generosity today‼️
