Eckerd Kids

Family has always been at the heart of Eckerd Connects. When they were founded in 1968 by Jack and Ruth Eckerd, the legendary power couple was often asked what motivated them to start a non-profit in rural Florida. Their answer was always the same. “It’s the kids.” To learn more, Eckerd Connects.

Today those words still hold true – but much like other families, theirs has grown. Nearly five decades later with a presence in 20 states, their family of services has expanded to include foster care, adoption, workforce development, aid for the homeless, transitional services for troubled youth, and so much more.

Eckerd Kids is a foster kids organization we support. To learn more, Eckerd Connects.
