Your Help is Needed! *** TIME SENSITIVE REQUEST ***

On Monday, February 9th we received a request from Senator Don Gaetz, Chairman of the Florida Senate Education Appropriations Committee for information to help the Florida Legislature determine the value of continuing to fund the CARD Centers. Please consider writing to your Florida State Senator or Representative and telling them how CARD has helped your child especially in school. Your testimonies are an important piece of information for our representatives when they decide which projects are worth continuing to fund and at what level.

For the most impact, please copy your letters to Senator Don Gaetz
(Chairman, Education Appropriations) and Senator Bill Montford (Vice Chairman, Education Appropriations).

You can find your state representatives’ contact information by
visiting this website and entering your address and city:

You are welcome to include the picture below with your letter. We also have postcards of this image that we can mail to you – just send your request to rhay64@ufl.edu and we will get them right out to you.

The Florida Senate will be making important budgetary decisions in the next 2 weeks!

If you have any questions you are welcome to email Greg Valcante, our Director, at valcante@ufl.edu.
