Each year, SRQ Media invites the community to nominate individuals with hearts of giving who have made a significant impact with local nonprofit organizations — from volunteers and board members to individual staff members and donors. Tuesday, December 5th, attendees happily joined together to recognize our annual Good Hero Philanthropic Award recipients at the SB2: Philanthropic Agenda and Good Hero Awards Luncheon at Michael’s on East in Sarasota. We are delighted to feature each of the twelve honorees in our Wednesday Philanthropic edition of SRQ Daily.

Today we are recognizing two good heroes, Marla and Jim Doss, for their incredible philanthropic work as donors in our community. Marla and Jim are champions for local children with a neverending list of contributions made possible through their generosity including: children's therapy scholarships through Suncoast Charities for Children, assistance packages for at-risk children at Children First and construction of a new preschool playground scheduled for 2024, recreational program support at Loveland's Bradenton Campus, summer camp scholarships for the blind organized by Venice Challenger Baseball, new sensory tool kits and calm-down supplies for mental health clinicians at The Florida Center for Early Childhood and new outdoor therapeutic activity area for individuals with special needs at Loveland Center. And that’s just a start! Marla and Jim, have provided funding for many years to Suncoast Charities for Children in support of numerous programs and services offered by six local nonprofit organizations that receive funding support from Suncoast Charities for Children. The impact they have made to organizations throughout Florida, is commendable. Congratulations, Marla and Jim.
