Red Bug Elementary School Rigorous Enriching Academic Challenges (REACH)
The trend continues! For nearly a decade, Ed Jarem, PE, PTOE, has enlightened fifth-grade students at Red Bug Elementary School in Seminole County on the various types of engineers and related careers. Again this year, he showed how real world math is used to conduct a speed study using a radar gun to determine the appropriate speed limit for the roadway. Several of the students said they are now looking into a career in engineering!
Giving HOPE with Metropolitan Ministries!
So proud of FDA’s Tampa staff for another year of generous donations. This annual tradition truly helps a lot of people in our community. Thanks to all those who participated!

He spoke with children in Mrs. Watson’s 5th Grade class and Mrs. Garcia’s 2nd Grade class. He engaged the students with visual aids and fielded their questions. Thanks to Mark for sharing his insights and getting students interested in engineering!
FDA hosted a CrowdRise campaign to benefit the American Red Cross’ Hurricane Michael relief efforts. The company matched employee donations up to $100 per donation.

Clermont Boy Scout Troop 3 and Kevin Carey did it again! On October 24th they made another trip to the Panhandle with more supplies for those impacted by Hurricane Michael. The supplies were again delivered to town of Grand Ridge in Jackson County. They served approximately 1,200 people through the supply line. Great job Troop 3!

Paint Your Heart Out Tampa
What better way to spend a Saturday morning than supporting Paint Your Heart Out Tampa?! FDA’s team of volunteers did an excellent job painting the house and revitalizing the yard. We love to give back to the community and had a wonderful time doing it. Thanks to all employees, family members, and friends who were able to help. Let’s make this an annual tradition!

Most recently the Troop took a trip to Tennessee where the girls had the opportunity to white water raft, zipline, horseback ride, and enjoy tubing down the Ocoee River. Community service efforts have included performing yearly beach cleanups; making donations of time and supplies to the Ronald McDonald House; purchasing and donating Christmas gifts to families on a local Angel Tree; making pillow cases for Conquer Cancer, where they help brighten the room of cancer patients. Annual camping trips have helped the girls become proficient at planning for the trip, setting up camp, making meals, and cleanup.
