Venice Cares, also known as Serve Florida, is a part of the Tri County Community Foundation. Tri County Air’s mission is to “comfort all in such a way that they are compelled to tell others about their experience and it honors the Great Comforter, Jesus Christ.” This mission extends far beyond air conditioning, heating, and indoor air quality. Our aim is that our community is comforted and changed for the better because of the work we do in it. Jim and Chris Foubister are the Directors of the Foundation and they work hard every day to meet the needs of our employees and the residents of our local community. We are proud to partner together with Social Black Belt, The City of Venice, and Venice High School to provide this event for our children and families. We are excited to arm our children with the information and resources they need to enter and graduate from high school with confidence and success.
