Banyan Air Service, based at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE), recently committed its support to 4KIDS of South Florida. Banyan helps this organization through volunteer opportunities, monetary donations, and new and gently used items, company officials said.
“We considered several nonprofit organizations but felt that the mission of 4KIDS of South Florida was the right match for Banyan. We spent several weeks getting to know the organization and felt that the Banyan team would be very supportive of the mission of 4KIDS of South Florida,” said Brandy Voss, Banyan’s Spirit Committee Director.
Last month, Banyan volunteers worked every Saturday to renovate a donated house by repairing drywall, fixing sprinklers, painting rooms, and working on landscaping. In addition, Banyan teammates support the nonprofit with donations through payroll deductions.
On Saturday, April 24, the Banyan team will participate in the 4KIDS of South Florida BiG Cardio at Central Broward Regional Park. This annual event, which raises funds for the organization, consists of numerous activities such as a cardio class, 5K run/walk, boot camp, basketball tournament, and fitness expo.
4KIDS of South Florida is a nonprofit organization committed to meeting the needs of thousands of children in foster care. From the moment a child is removed from their family because of abuse, abandonment, or neglect, this organization provides for them physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. 4KIDS has more than 100 licensed foster homes and foster families, 12 family-style homes, and cares for more than 1,000 children each year.
