James Kennaugh and Olwyn we're so sorry for your loss.
3RD Annual Christmas in July Event
When the nine Kiwanis Clubs of Collier County learned of this problem, our leaders and members united to help serve these children in need of basic supplies to help them start the school year right. In 2016, our clubs launched a local campaign of “Christmas in July”, designed to give the students who are homeless or at risk of being homeless in Collier County the basic necessities of clothing, shoes, backpacks, school supplies and personal c...are items so that they had the opportunity to focus on their schoolwork.
It takes $89 per child to provide these students with the gift of hope and support to start the school year off right, which means that we need to raise over $200,000 this year.
Bikes For Tykes has also vowed to provide New and Restored Bikes for Children for Back to School.
The Pilot Club of Naples also will be providing Helmets, fitting children for safety on their bikes.
This is a community effort and you can help:

Hard work and dedication. Two foundations that I've never strayed from and to which has never let me down. Starting July of this year, I have accepted an offer ...to attend the A.T. Still University Missouri School of Dentistry and Oral Health (MOSDOH) in Kirksville, Missouri to pursue a degree and title of Doctor of Dental Medicine. The road up to this point has been humbling, to say the least, and I have learned so much from so many different individuals. Thank you to everyone who has molded my way of thinking and helped me along the way to pursue my passion in dentistry. I will be moving in 4 months to a very small town with much lower average temperatures and I can't wait. Special shout out to my mother, grandmother and grandfather whom have pushed me and granted me the tools to be the very best I can be! Next stop... Kirksville! #DMD #ATSUACCEPTED #TMT #MommaWeMadeIt
