Give the Kids the World 2010

Palm Beach Atlantic University alumni and friends in the Orlando area teamed up recently for their second Workship project at Give Kids the World Village in Kissimmee.

Twenty-eight participants representing graduation years from 1974 to 2010 served breakfast on a Saturday morning to families at Give Kids the World, a 70-acre, non-profit resort that creates magical memories for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.

One alumna traveled from Jacksonville that morning to serve, said Amy Paul '00/'09 ORL, the Central Florida chapter leader for the PBA Alumni Association.

"Everyone asked to do the project again, and many expressed interest in serving at Give Kids the World on a more regular basis," Paul said.

"While most of the participants live in Central Florida, a majority of them didn't know that GKTW was right in their back yard. So it was a win-win — great for PBA alums to connect and serve in their community, and great for introducing GKTW to a new group of people."
