Charity News And Notes March 2015

SW Florida residents, businesses, and organizations again are doing amazing things to improve the lives of their neighbors.  Working independently and in concert they continue to make a difference in their community.  Many heartfelt thanks to those that have a passion for making a positive difference.

The Harry Chapin Food Bank has surpassed the halfway mark toward meeting it's goal of raising $5.1 million to use in it's fight against hunger.  The public campaign to complete that goal was recently announced to more than 200 guests at their warehouse. A key focus in this years campaign will be to increase their capacity to distribute the food to the families and individuals that need it.  They currently distribute through a network of 150 nonprofit agencies in SW Florida that distribute that food to over 30,000 people per month.


The Greater Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce Women in Business raised over $4,000 at its Annual Dessert Auction recently.  Proceeds are given to the Women in Business Scholarship Fund.


The American Cancer Society wants to "Paint the town purple!"  Businesses and organizations are invited to become involved in the Relay For Life Movement which raises money for cancer research, education, prevention,  and critical services for families and individuals currently battling cancer.
