GARLAND: We salute the Florida Sheriffs Ranches and Polk Sheriff’s Charities for their work to establish the Scholarship House in Bartow. The facility will house 10 people who graduate from the Sheriffs Ranches residential program for needy children or from foster care and who go on to vocational training or community college. In addition to providing these young adults a place to live, a full-time staffer will help coach them in life skills. The goal, said Bill Frye, CEO of the Florida Youth Ranches charity, is to surpass the 10 percent national average of such people who finish local college or vocational school.

FLORIDA – The Trey Curry Foundation continues to Assist Children in Need and is expanding their reach through the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches.
Since the establishment of the Trey Curry Foundation in 2008, their purpose has been to assist children in need. The foundation is utilized to raise funds for worthy causes. Most recently they had focused on A Kids Place in Brandon, FL.
The Trey Curry Foundation recently met their $400,000 goal, establishing “the Trey Curry House at A Kids Place.” The foundation has now set their goals even higher and has turned their attention to reaching even more children.
Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches Director of Development Wayne Witczak said “The Curry family has been dedicated to the assisting children in need and the Youth Ranches is committed to providing help and hope to children in need.”
Witczak, was familiar with the Curry Family and had worked with the foundation in the past. He is pleased to working with the foundation again and helping them to expand their reach to help even more children.
“It seemed like a natural next step for the Trey Curry Foundation and the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches to partner in support of our communities most vulnerable little citizens” added Witczak.
The Trey Curry Foundation is heavily involved in the community and raises their support through events benefiting the charities they support. Trey Fest Captains Party & Fishing Tournament and Vine to Wine are their two major events held annually. These events have been heavily supported by family, friends and the community. Everyone who attends shares a passion for helping children and has been so generous supporting these activities. “We are so proud to be part of this community and to give back honoring the memory of our son Trey” says Terry Curry. “We are a proud supporter of Law Enforcement and feel the Youth Ranches could benefit greatly from our charitable endeavors”.
