Our Service Projects

Below are a few of the many projects we did throughout the 2005-2006 and 2006-2007 school years.

D-FY-IT DURING 2005-2006
November 11, 2005 - A Happy Thanksgiving

     On Thanksgiving morning, a group of D-FY-IT members dedicated their time and service to Perrine-Peters United Methodist Church in hopes of helping the less fortunate during the holidays.

     Feeding over 3,000 people throughout Miami-Dade County, D-FY-IT members assisted in the process of making Thanksgiving dinners by filling cups with cranberry, sorting loaves of bread, serving food, and packaging dinners to be sent off to different families in the community. D-FY-IT members were thankful for this special opportunity to help others in need, especially during Thanksgiving.  


January 6, 2006 - Kicking Off First Fridays
      Kicking off at the beginning of the year, our First Fridays is already famous throughout the Miami-Dade community. First Fridays, an monthly event, aims to provide a drug- and alcohol-free environment for teenagers to have fun with their family and friends.
     First Fridays, created by the Coral Gables D-FY-IT chapter, is believed to be the only program of its kind in Florida and perhaps, even the United States. 
     In 2006, the national D-FY-IT organization awarded First Fridays the Nicole Smith Greatest Achievement Award!  

December 11, 2005 - IRC Annual Holiday Party 
     In December, members of the D-FY-IT Club volunteered at the the International Rescue Committee's annual holiday party for refugees. Among the many things D-FY-IT members helped with included the preparations, decorations, entertainment, supervision of the young children, and distribution of gifts.

     Last year, over 300 hundred children attended this festive holiday party. The refugee families and their children ate lunch, played in the moonwalk, took pictures with Santa and Mrs.Claus, enjoyed the children’s entertainment, and played games with the volunteers.


March 28, 2006 - Kitchen Clean-Up
     At the end of March, D-FY-IT members dedicated their time to The Studio. The Studio, a local church known for hosting D-FY-IT's famous First Fridays, was in need of a sparkling new kitchen.
     Members helped by doing various tasks ranging from  scrubbing cups to washing kitchen appliances. "We had an awesome time cleaning up the kitchen because everyone was just laughing and joking with each other," said a fellow D-FY-IT member.
