Ft Myers Charities | News And Notes

Charities in Ft Myers have had a large number of benefactors over the past several months. Many individuals, groups and organizations have gone the extra mile to make a difference in their community. Many times I have heard an inspiring story and wanted to share it here, but, found myself short on time. Thought I would share the notes remaining on my desk before they get lost.

  • Employee's of Fifth Third Bank raised over $6,000 to the Muscular Dystrophy Association of Southwest Florida.
