F.I.S.H. seeks donors for Adopt-A-Family Program
F.I.S.H. of Sanibel-Captiva’s Adopt-a-Family program helps make the holidays merrier for island residents and workers by providing holiday gifts for an individual or family.
Many F.I.S.H. clients are underemployed and/or have recently lost income due to COVID-19 or other medical emergencies, live on low fixed incomes, or have encountered other circumstances that limit income. Supporting island neighbors through the program is a simple act of kindness that can make all the difference in the world. The program can also provide a team building opportunity for companies, service clubs, youth groups and more.
Individuals and businesses can become an Adopt-A-Family donor by contacting Maria Espinoza at 239-472-4775. Afterward, the process is as follows:
– F.I.S.H. will provide a wish list from Adopt-A-Family clients.
– Donors shop for gifts; all items must be new purchases.
– Donors drop off unwrapped gifts to the F.I.S.H. Walk-In Center by Dec. 4.
F.I.S.H. volunteers will sort, wrap and deliver the gifts in time for the holiday. They will follow strict COVID safety measures including wearing masks, social distancing and frequent hand sanitization.
If you or someone you know can benefit from the program, contact F.I.S.H.
