Good causes by the numbers
<![CDATA[After deadly tornadoes hit Moore, Okla. last May, Southwest Florida College sought to provide direct aid to families at its sister campus. SFC Holding Corporation, which operates Southwest Florida College and Platt College in Oklahoma, set up a donation network to help the faculty, staff and students at the Platt campus in Moore. The executive team challenged each campus to raise $1,000, promising to match the first $11,000 collected. Donations were collected through July 20 totaling $22,000. Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida, Inc. sends a big thank you to local businesses and individuals who participated in the 2013 Teddy Bear Drives, as part of the preparation for the Festival of Trees. The organization is collecting the bears for the "Very Beary Christmas Tree," a tree that has been a part of the festival since its inception and, ultimately, goes to the children's hospital. In recognition of its efforts in fighting local hunger and homelessness, Community Cooperative Ministries, Inc. received a $4,000 grant from Target Corporation that will be used to provide much-needed food and supplies for the organization's Everyday Cafes and Marketplaces in Fort Myers and Cape Coral. The veterans have found housing in Lee County, thanks to providers including Lee County Department of Human Services, Lee County Homeless Coalition, Veteran's Affairs, American Red Cross, the Fort Myers Housing Authority and the American Legion Post 38. The effort started back in April when local homeless providers were invited to join the 100,000 Campaign to house 100,000 homeless veterans nationwide by the end of December 2013. Local providers committed to housing 50 homeless veterans in 90 days. By the time the 90-day period ended, 52 homeless veterans found housing. So in July, the same local groups committed to housing another 50 to reach 100 by the end of December. There are 20 veterans in the system currently looking for housing. The annual Diocese of Venice Youth Rally has grown from humble beginnings to become the largest gathering of Catholic youth in Southwest Florida. More than 1,300 youth joined Most. Rev. Frank J. Dewane, Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Venice in Florida for a day of spiritual enrichment and Diocesan solidarity at St. Leo Parish in Bonita Springs on Nov. 2. The event draws youth from more than 40 parishes in a 10-county area stretching from Collier County in the south to Manatee County in the north.
