SOUTH BAY — Recent Philanthropy Tank (www.philanthropytank.org) funded program StudentBodyHealth along with Federation of Families of Florida, Inc. and Healthier Glades will hold a free event this Friday evening to help kids and teens with their mental health awareness. “Soil to Soul” will take place at the Federation of Families located at 101 N.W. First Ave. in South Bay on Friday, May 14 from 4 to 7 p.m.
Students, faculty and youth volunteers will come together to plant flowers and paint flower pots during the outdoor garden event. The goal is to bring kids together for a therapeutic arts and crafts activity that they can take home and care for the plants as they learn to care for themselves.
StudentBodyHealth’s mission is to boost mental morale and positive health practices for youth by teaching yoga and healthy eating habits. Alexis Bardy, an 11th grader at G-Star School of the Arts in West Palm Beach, started the program as a way to help her peers cope with the COVID-19 quarantine. May is Mental Health Awareness Month.
StudentBodyHealth is one of seven student-led philanthropy programs awarded funding during the Year 6 Finals Event. Applications for Year 7 are now open.
