Thank you, Sanibel and Captiva Islands

By Staff | Dec 19, 2018

Thank you Sanibel and Captiva residents and visitors. Thank you Sanibel and Captiva businesses, foundations, organizations and municipalities. Thank you Sanibel and Captiva volunteers! F.I.S.H. of Sanibel-Captiva cannot say thank you enough for your generous support of our mission, programs, services and workshops to benefit our island neighbors, workers and visitors.

At F.I.S.H., the vision is to enrich the lives of everyone on Sanibel and Captiva Islands through an array of food programs, island-based workshops, social services and helping hands. F.I.S.H. answered nearly 15,000 requests for services in 2017, and that number will surely increase for 2018. Many requests are for those seeking resources, medical equipment and transportation, while others have come across hard times, requesting temporary emergency financial assistance. F.I.S.H. is for everyone, and prides itself on being able to respond to every call or inquiry to the agency, 365 days per year. F.I.S.H. could not continue to provide the many programs services and workshops that it does without the support of the entire community.

The generous donations of cash, food, in-kind services and time go a long way to help F.I.S.H. bring much needed services to the Sanibel and Captiva islands. These donations have made a real difference in the lives of our neighbors and visitors. Thanks to the community, F.I.S.H. can continue to help our neighbors navigate through disastrous times (red tide/blue-green algae), through times of crisis (medical emergencies, job loss), through self-improvement actions (continuing education scholarships, tutoring, youth scholarships), and so much more! Our neighbors’ successes are yours too, and we hope you are proud of your achievements.
