Southeastern Guide Dogs
Southeastern Guide Dogs began a vision in 1982 – to help those who cannot see. They have grown over the years with the same mission, to transform lives by creating and nurturing extraordinary partnerships between people and dogs. A non-profit with a national reach, they train dogs to give people with vision lost and for veterans the independence and support to live life to its fullest.
Jeeves Law Group is proud to support the local walk-a-thons to help raise money to support all the programs involved in training and pairing of each service dog. Also, JLG is excited to support SEGD by sponsoring and naming a puppy. By sponsoring a puppy, we are able to support the journey from puppy to world-class guide dog! Knowing, that no matter what, this puppy will help make an impact to help someone in need is very rewarding!
Since Southeastern Guide Dogs started, they have creative over 3,100 guide and service dog teams, all provided at no cost to people with vision loss and veterans with PTSD and other disabilities.
The Sunshine Skyway Bridge, spanning the mouth of the Tampa Bay, was the first of its kind and the longest segmental cable-stayed bridge in the Western Hemisphere when it opened in 1987. The Skyway is the proud gateway to MacDill Air Force Base and to Hillsborough, Pinellas and Manatee Counties, home to the most veterans and active military in Florida. A perfect place for a breathtaking, 6.2-mile course race!
All to support the Armed Forces Family Foundation (AFFF) – a non-profit organization that utilizes 100 percent of funds to give back to local communities to support military families. The support comes in the form of infrastructures, community alliances and family support for those who have loved ones serving abroad. The AFFF is comprised of a 100 percent volunteer-based organization, which enables the Foundation to operate without any overhead costs.
Jeeves Law Group was proud to partner with the Skyway 10K organizers to sponsor the 2nd Annual Skyway 10k Race! 100% of the proceeds will benefit the AFFF, going directly towards projects to support military families.
For the past few years, Jeeves Law Group and More Health have teamed up to help expand the safety educational outreach to schools in the Tampa Bay Area through the Trauma Is No Accident lesson.
Since 1989, MORE HEALTH, Inc. has been working to improve the health and safety of children, teens, and adults through interactive lessons. MORE HEALTH has taught over 3.2 million students in schools throughout the Tampa Bay area, one lesson, and one classroom at a time.
Trauma Is No Accident lesson is presented to high school students in Hillsborough, Pasco, and Pinellas Counties during the school year. Approximately 1,660 high school students in 83 classrooms will receive education on making safe decisions while driving. Students will recognize how the choices they make will impact their safety and the safety of their passengers.
According to the most recent data from the Florida Crash Statistics Report, published each year by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, there was a 10.9% increase in teen driver accidents in Florida when compared to the previous year. For Tampa Bay in particular (Hernando, Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties), the increase in teen driver accidents was at 6.2%. However, each county in Tampa Bay saw an increase. The Tampa Bay area continues to place in the top metropolitan areas across the US for teen fatalities due to vehicle crashes. MORE HEALTH’s mission to improve the health of children, teens, and adults through education has the ability to make a large impact in this area. The highly interactive “Trauma is No Accident” Lesson was developed and implemented by MORE HEALTH as an innovative way to engage high school students. Students learn that speeding, drinking and driving, and distractions such as cell phones, music, food, and friends can lead to deadly accidents. Factual stories and simulations emphasize the importance of wearing a seatbelt and not drinking and driving. Students gain an understanding of brain and spinal cord injuries and the process of rehabilitation.
The Dali Museum
Dilly Dali Support
Just another way for children and their families can enjoy The Dali. DillyDally is located on the 1st floor Education Classroom and children can discover the creative world of Dali through games, puzzles and arts & craft while learning about Dali. This is open every day and on Saturday’s and provides additional activities, free of charge, for the family.
The Recreation Center Bike Safety Program
The Recreation Center Program is an innovative five week series of summer workshops, offered with the support of Creative Pinellas and the Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners, provided to high-need students in five St. Petersburg Recreation Centers. The workshops provide close contact between students and instructors, developing the students’ self-esteem, an understanding of Dali and Surrealism as well as guidance through project creation.
Together, along with MORE Health and Johns Hopkin’s All Children’s, the Bike Safety Program was developed to help educate students about the importance of wearing bike helmets. Each student will receive a complimentary bike helmet from Jeeves Law Group, to paint and decorate in their own style. Additionally, there is a big “Bike Rodeo” event to allow students to showcase their helmets and have fun while learning about bike safety!
artLOUD! Streetcar Sculptures
artLOUD! is a program sponsored by CREW Tampa Bay to promote art appreciation in Tampa Bay. The artLOUD! Streetcar Project promotes mass transit while beautifying and “sculpting” our city. Colorful streetcars designed by artists and companies enhance the exciting urban walking experience in downtown Tampa.
Jeeves Law Group sponsored a Streetcar to show the support to this initiative. In an effort to further include the Tampa Bay involvement, the streetcar was then designed and painted by the Junior Docents at the Dali Museum. These docents are a group of middle school children ages 10-13 years old. They did a fantastic job and we could be prouder to have the Jeeves Law Group in conjunction with the Junior Docents of the Dali Museum streetcar on display in the Channelside area.
