Doing Good Together in Fort Myers

Share this post!

Volunteers, donors, and church and community partners joined us for the Doing Good Together reception Tuesday, May 30, in Fort Myers.

The event is our way of saying thank you to all who play a role in our mission. Last night we honored the Department of Children and Families Secretary, Shevaun Harris for all of her support. Each supporter is worth more than gold to us and our families. Some have hosted a child in a safe environment while the parents work to stabilize their family. Some have been an advocate for someone in crisis, an ear to listen, experience to pull from. Some gather supplies and resources. Some help job seekers connect to employment. You give your time or money. You give your prayer.
