FIRST® Team 79 Krunch positively impacts hundreds of children and students here in Pinellas, Pasco, and Hillsborough counties as well as nationally and internationally through our community outreach efforts. As ambassadors for FIRST® and STEM, our team members engage with other students, mentors, and sponsors through various robot demonstrations at local schools, businesses, churches, civic groups, community events, and other organizations. Team members are involved in recycling and environmental programs, walk-a-thons, and donation drives where they raise money and supplies for charitable organizations and individuals who are less fortunate.
Our team also volunteers and performs robotics demonstrations each year at the East Lake Sunrise Rotary Charity Car Show at John Chesnut Park in Palm Harbor, Florida.
Some of the team's outreach events this season included:
Collection of supplies and toiletries for donation to those affected by Hurricane Ian, and for the people in war-torn Ukraine through a Ukrainian church ministry in St. Petersburg, Florida
Demonstrations of our robots at local schools, as well as at the Dino and Dragon's Show museum exhibit
Participation in several community events such as roadside cleanups and the Palm Harbor Christmas Parade
Please feel free to contact us if you would like to have our team participate in an outreach event, fundraiser, and/or perform a robot demonstration at your school, business, church, organization, or event.
