SCIAR collects linens, funds for foster families
For several years, the Sanibel & Captiva Islands Association of Realtors has come together to raise money and collect bed linens and stuffed animals for the Bedz for Kidz program. A part of the Guardian Ad Litem organization, Bedz for Kidz provides beds, linens, and other sleep necessities to local foster families. This spring, the group gathered crib mattress and twin-size sheets, comforters, stuffed animals, and blankets at its weekly Caravan Tour meetings. Guardian Ad Litem volunteer Cynthia Schafer attended the April 11 meeting and accepted the linens, along with a $500 check from the association to help purchase additional items for foster families. For more information or to donate to Bedz for Kidz, visit “http://www.voicesforkids.org/about-us/programs”>www.voicesforkids.org/about-us/programs or call 239-533-1435. Through the end of May, Realtors are collecting non-perishable food items for F.I.S.H of Sanibel-Captiva. Donations can be dropped off at the office, at 2353 Periwinkle Way, Suite 201, Sanibel.
