Charities

At Pilates of Amelia, we believe it is important to give back to our community, our country, and our world. We are privileged to support several charities. Some of our charities are local while others benefit families of foreign countries. Below is a list of the charities we support. We would like to thank all of our clients who generously donate to these charities.

  • Pilates of Amelia is a "Guard Dog" for K9s for Warriors. They are based out of Ponte Vedra and are dedicated to providing service canines to our warriors suffering from Post-traumatic Stress Disability, traumatic brain injury and/or military sexual trauma as a result of military service post 9/11. Their goal is to empower them to return to civilian life with dignity and independence. For more information, or to become a Guard Dog yourself, visit http://www.k9sforwarriors.org/
  • Nassau County's Take Stock in Children. This program provides mentors and college scholarships to low-income and at-risk students.Students who would normally drop out of high school or not go on to college because of financial reasons have gone on to top universities and graduated from them with help from the Take Stock in Children program.

  • Samaritan's Purse. A Christian based organization, they work to aid the world's poor, sick, and suffering. Samaritan's Purse sponsors emergency relief programs, community development and vocational programs, and aid children with education, food, shelter, and clothes. We are proud to donate to them, and most especially to participate in Operation Christmas Child every year, providing a Christmas to children who would normally not see one. Over the past 2 years, we have donated over 30 shoe boxes full of gifts for children to the program.
