SWAG Participates in the UF Campaign for Charities

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

SWAG is proud to be one of the non-profit agencies participating in the UF Campaign for Charities. Many of SWAG’s past and present board members are proud Gators. Moreover, most of our interns at the SWAG Family Resource Center come to us from UF’s health colleges each year. Visit this link if you are a UF employee and would like to help support SWAG’s work!

Below are just some of the impactful ways UF colleges have stepped off their campus and into our community. In doing so, they help support our local children and families in SW Gainesville.

Dr. Nancy Hardt’s 2008 density maps were the catalyst for action to bring greater resources & opportunities to the SWAG area.
Dr. Nancy Hardt pulled un unused Blue Bird bus “out of mothballs” at UF in 2010 and started the UF Mobile Outreach Clinic to answer some of our county’s unmet health disparities. While SWAG now has the brick and mortar SW Health Clinic, the Mobile Outreach Clinic is still out in our community every day serving people where they are needed most.
Students from our Resource Centers visited the Harn Museum of Art and practiced making art in the style of Jacob Lawrence.
SWAG Family Resource Center after school enrichment students enjoyed a night out to see Alvin Ailey Dance Theater.
SWAG’s partnership with UF has provided the expertise to open the CHILD Center for Early Learning.
