Members of the St. Augustine Sertoma Club have the opportunity to provide SERvice TO MAnkind in many ways. Our fundraising events generate revenue that is used to support individuals and charitable organizations in our area. Our club members have the opportunity to touch many lives in a positive way. Although our club has contributed its resources to a wide range of projects over the years, we focus on providing immediate assistance to the men, women and children of St. Johns County through financial contributions, scholarship awards, activities, and so much more!
In addition to its many fundraising events, Sertoma rises to meet the needs of the community on more personal levels as well.
Computer Learning Center
Sertoma has taken the Hastings O.U.R. Center under its wings. In addition to providing computers and school supplies for the center, Sertoma has sponsored Friday night dinners, underwritten summer camp excursions, provided musical instruments for their music room, built picnic tables, computer work stations and activity centers for their classrooms.
Sertoma raised funds for, and refurbished a van for Community in Schools, to be used for ferrying their kids wherever they need to go.
Habitat for Humanity
Part of the funds raised from our first basketball shootout went to providing enough money to put roofs on six Habitat for Humanity houses.
Wildflower Dental Clinic
Sertoma contributed $2500 to the fledgling Wildflower Dental Clinic, and challenged the other charities in the county to match our contribution. A plaque celebrating Sertoma’s efforts on the clinic’s behalf hangs in one of the examining rooms.
Speech and Hearing Aid
Part of Sertoma’s charter is to devote time and effort to hearing and speech efforts. To that end, Sertoma has provided 14 color printers to the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind, as well as numerous hearing aids for local individuals who could not afford them.
United We Serve
The entire project was to get non-profit organizations, government at all levels, faith-based groups, local business’ and individuals to reignite the spirit of unity and service that inspired Americans in the days after the 9/11 tragedy.
Pie in the Sky
Sertoma partnered with the St. Johns Housing Partnership, Pie in the Sky, individuals and neighbors in the small farming community of Hastings, Fl., to give a young man the ability to go outside of his home into the yard and into his community and give him some independence. It was truly a labor of love.
