They are in dire need of basic items such as food, water, hygiene products and clothing, which is why we have launched this collection to help those Boys and Girls Clubs families in the Keys.”

Items needed are:
  • Water
  • Bug Spray
  • Diapers and Baby products
  • Hygiene products
  • Non-perishable food, easily opened
  • Clothes and shoes for children and teenagers, pre-sorted please
