Our community is full of incredible people and organizations, out making a difference for others! In this month’s Non-Profit Spotlight we’d like to recognize Project 99–Play for Life, Inc.!

Project 99 was founded after the suicide of Diego Villarreal, a 16-year-old student athlete at Murrieta Valley High School, in August 2015. The Project 99 team works diligently to ensure that the topic of suicide is addressed and that youth in the community know they can reach out for help.

Project 99’s mission is to educate teens and the community about the negative consequences of suicide and to show students how one choice can devastate an entire community. Our panel of speakers discusses the topics of how suicide directly affects one’s family and community, resources available to those affected, other ways of coping and releasing negative emotions, and reassures students that they are not alone in their time of distress.

Although COVID gave Project 99 an initial pause, they no longer had direct access to the students and many of the board members being school district employees that had to focus on the many changes in schooling back in March. The summer allowed them to find their footing and they are now getting ready to train as many adults in the community as they can for the coming 2020-21 school year.

For the month of January 2021 Stromsoe Insurance will donate $21 to Project 99 for every referral that comes to our team!

Donations are always welcome and will support their efforts to train others and to share resources like the suicide prevention phone numbers. While Project 99 greatly appreciates monetary donations, you can also support them by spreading the message. They know that suicide is not a comfortable subject for most people, but you never expect to need these tools…until you do. If you know of a company or organization that could benefit from the training to become Suicide Gatekeepers, please reach out to the Project 99 team at project99org@gmail.com or by calling (951)704-8622.
