Thanks to the kindness of the nurses and carers at HCA Florida Sarasota Doctors Hospital, the children at the Safe Children Coalition's juvenile shelter enjoyed a Christmas full of activities as well as clothing and other essentials.
The juvenile shelter's staff said that the older kids they assist who are homeless or in distress have a tremendous need for clothing and games.
Early in December, carers brought in donations and gathered them at the hospital for many weeks. An Xbox gaming console, gift cards for movies, apparel, and sporting goods were among the many things donated in a carload.
Since Hurricane Ian, a Category 4 storm that hit Florida in late September, many Floridians have experienced significant changes in their life.
The All Faiths Food Bank became ready before the storm hit, and it has been working ever since to help residents who were affected by the disaster with both their short-term and long-term needs.
The Food Bank is appreciative of the help it has received from several businesses, foundations, and organizations, which have donated a total of $690,000 to help with storm relief efforts: Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, the Charles & Margery Barancik Foundation, the DeSoto County Chamber of Commerce Foundation, the Florida Blue Foundation, the Gulf Coast Community Foundation, InstaCart through Feeding America, the Louis, and Gloria Flanzer Philanthropic Trust, the Shear Family Foundation, the Southwest Airlines, the Starling Group, the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation, and the Walmart Foundation are among the organizations that have received funding.
All Faiths makes ongoing preparations for disaster response and is ready to go into action right away when a storm is a forecast.
All Faiths Food Bank distributed food and water to shelters and disaster relief organizations even before Hurricane Ian made landfall here. All Faiths Food Bank has given food and water to shelters and disaster relief agencies since the hurricane made landfall and has continued to give food and supplies to storm victims in our neighborhood.
On December 21 in Bradenton, the Gettel Foundation handed a $30,000 cheque to Toys for Tots.
