The Emerald Coast Children’s Advocacy Center (ECCAC) and Gracie’s Good Deeds are in alliance for a mutual cause - to help children. For the past few years, Gracie’s Good Deeds has donated wipes, cleaning supplies, clothes, snacks, drinks, Pack 'n Plays, therapy graduation decorations, gift cards, toiletry items, and diapers to ECCAC in honor of their daughter.
Unfortunately, David and Courtney Konradt lost their almost 3-year old daughter unexpectedly in her sleep 5 years ago. Since that time, the Konradts, who are residents of Niceville, established Gracie’s Good Deeds in memory of Gracie. They are remembering her life by helping others through random acts of kindness with donations made to a number of charities in Northwest Florida.
Courtney Konradt commented, “It is our family’s way of honoring Gracie’s memory and spirit. We also would like to inspire and help those around us. We personally know how much a kind word or gesture can help a person through the toughest of times, and we would like to share that feeling with others.”
ECCAC CEO, Julie Porterfield said, “We are incredibly thankful to the Konradts for their kindness and generosity to us over the years to honor their sweet daughter.”
ECCAC is in its 21st year of operation with centers in Niceville and DeFuniak Springs. They have provided over 150,000 services at no cost to more than 15,000 children experiencing abuse, abandonment or neglect to include mental health therapy, crisis intervention, referrals to other community providers, interviews and medicals.
