Supporting the Communities we Serve
A bit reminiscent of the holiday story
How the Grinch Stole Christmas, two nonprofit organizations that help at-risk youth in the Tampa neighborhood of Sulphur Springs were burglarized only days before Christmas, having thousands of dollars’ worth of technology stolen. One of the organizations, Community Stepping Stones, helps at-risk youth creatively learn through art, using art classes and projects to teach children – from age 5 all the way through high school – how to be successful as adults.
Learning of their loss, NC4 joined forces with Tampa PD and donated 5 brand-new laptops, 1 printer and 2 video surveillance systems to these two very worthy charities on December 22. Tampa PD officers installed the cameras and are also planning to help clean-up the vegetation that has overgrown near windows to provide better coverage by the cameras, as well as discourage would-be burglars.
