Lions Club, Bailey’s team up for donation to F.I.S.H.

By Staff | Dec 21, 2010

The Sanibel Captiva Lions Club continues its tradition of spreading plenty of goodwill during the holidays. They recently teamed up with Bailey’s General Store managers Richard and Mead Johnson to present a surprise donation of $500 worth of food to Friends In Service Here (F.I.S.H.).

The presentation took place last week at the Lion’s Tree Lot in the Bailey’s Center. The Bailey’s van was filled with much needed items for the F.I.S.H food pantry.

Each year, Lions’ Club Charities raise money for deserving causes, including F.I.S.H and other local organizations that provide help and relief for local families.

“The Sanibel Captiva Lions Club would like to thank Bailey’s for helping us make this great donation,” said Tom Hoover, Lions Club president. “We are very glad and proud that we could provide additional help and assistance to people in need during the holidays.”

For more than 29 years, F.I.S.H. has been lending a helping hand to those in need who live, work or visit Sanibel and Captiva by providing free human services such as transportation for medical appointments, meal delivery, health equipment, food pantry and emergency financial assistance through a group of volunteers who care about the quality of life for all those who request help. The organization serves over 900 clients on Sanibel and Captiva.

If you would like to become a volunteer or offer assistance, contact F.I.S.H. by calling 472-4775 or visiting their Walk-In Center, located at 1630 Periwinkle Way, Unit B. Hours are Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
