August 28 - August 30, 2017
Hilton Bonnet Creek | Orlando, FL

This year we have selected a very special charity that affords us the opportunity to touch the lives of many children throughout the state of Florida. Our charity choice is the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches.

In this program, children from ages 3 to 18 have received the help & hope that the Youth Ranches provide. As a private charity, their success depends on individuals and organizations who want to make a difference. The smallest to largest sibling groups are accommodated at the various campuses throughout the State. It is important to note that children from all sixty-seven Florida Counties have benefited from the services the Youth Ranches provide.


Join HR Florida and help us make a difference.  Please consider volunteering and/or donating today. If you donate, feel free to wear jeans on Wednesday, per HR Florida tradition.
