Pilot Club supports SAYS

SAINT AUGUSTINE: St. Augustine Youth Services is preparing to celebrate its 30th anniversary, Cheslea Reppin, director of development and marketing, told members of the Pilot Club of St. Augustine at its February program meeting. Begun as an organization to serve girls, boys were added and SAYS eventually became an all-boys service. Soon 40 males will be served at the facility now located south of St. Augustine just off U.S. 1 South near the Southeast Branch Library. Youth mental health is the specialty, Reppin told the gathering. All the residents attend public school.

All totaled, the speaker added, 1,000 children have been served in all the programs.

Donations are always welcomed. Members of the Pilot Club presented gifts at Christmas ranging from hygiene items to socks. Suitcases are always a welcomed addition, it was noted.

The next big project for the facility will be a living village for those who age out of the SAYS. This facility, Reppin concluded, will help young men transition into adulthood.

A monetary donation was presented to the organization by Kay David, coordinator of community service, on behalf of the Pilot Club.
