Everglades University project benefits homeless veterans

Cool Story - Everglades University project benefits homeless veterans

Goodwill Manasota and its Veterans Services program recently teamed with the Everglades University - Sarasota Campus to gather supplies for homeless veterans.

During its mid-August to mid-September donation drive, Everglades University gathered socks, t-shirts, canned food, Slim Jims, trail mix, other munchies, mini-water bottles, combs, deodorant, and other items.

The American Veterans and Their Families program of Goodwill provided these things in backpacks to homeless veterans.

Students, staff, and teachers at Everglades University each choose a charitable organization to help each month. Being a Yellow Ribbon school and servicing many veterans who are pursuing their education after serving their nation, Everglades University is a particularly suitable fit for the campus' humanitarian initiative for veterans.

The US Eye Better Together Employee Relief Fund is a program that offers financial assistance to employees who suffered significant losses as a result of Hurricane Ian. It was established by US Eye, the management company of several local ophthalmology groups, including Center For Sight and Southwest Florida Eye Care.

The project was started by US Eye of Sarasota, which promised to match the first $50,000 in donations. David Shoemaker, M.D., the founder and CEO of US Eye, also volunteered to personally match a further $25,000 donation.

Within 24 hours, US Eye staff members made individual contributions totaling more than $50,000 for coworkers affected by Hurricane Ian.

The corporation has made the contribution drive accessible to the public in the hopes that it will greatly outperform that number in the upcoming days and weeks.

The 501(c)(3) company E4E Relief manages the employee relief fund. Applications for employee grants will be accepted by E4E Relief, which will also execute grant payments to deserving employees after reviewing submitted requests and making award decisions. Employees will be given a cash payment to offset any hurricane-related expenses.

No donation is too modest, and every tax-deductible gift will go entirely toward assisting US Eye families in getting better and starting over.

The Charles & Margery Barancik Foundation has awarded CareerEdge, the Greater Sarasota Chamber of Commerce's workforce development program, a gift of $150,000.
