More than 100 Homestead kids get free swimming lessons thanks to Kiwanis
Thanks to the Kiwanis Club of Homestead-South Dade (HomesteadKiwanis.org), one of South Florida’s most active community service organizations, 130 youngsters from Touching Miami with Love (TouchingMiamiWithLove.org) are receiving free swimming lessons this summer at Roby George Park in Homestead. “With the frequency of childhood drowning deaths increasing — particularly among minority children — we thought it was vital to support Touching Miami with Love’s efforts to provide swimming lessons for these children,” said Homestead Kiwanis president Emily Guzman. “Like many non-profits, our budget is always stretched, nearly to the breaking point,” said Touching Miami with Love CEO Trina Harris. “Adding an important program like the swimming lessons was going to be very difficult, but the Homestead Kiwanis made this possible. This August, Homestead Kiwanians are joining Homestead Councilmember and Kiwanis Florida District Lt. Gov.communitynewspapers.com

Love, Hope & Healing’s mission is to provide self-care and mentoring resources that will create lasting changes in families in our community.thewestsidegazette.com

Finally, love takes the larger perspective.thewestsidegazette.com
