To the editor:
On behalf of the Pine Island FISH organization, I would like to thank all of the generous individuals, organizations and churches that continue to support our efforts on behalf of the greater Pine Island area residents. As many of you are aware, the organization has recently celebrated 25 years of service to the island and we could not have done it without you!
In addition, we want to recognize our more than 70 volunteers who give of their time (and gasoline) to assist our clients with transportation, emergency financial assistance, mobility equipment, respite and in touch services. None of our volunteers are paid and all assistance is provided to our clients at no charge.
As always, we continue to need volunteers, especially during summer months, to help with the transportation of our clients. If you are interested in helping those island residents who can no longer drive to doctors, grocery stores, pharmacies, etc., please visit our website, pineislandfish.org, fill out a registration form and return it to PO Box 357, Matlacha, FL 33993.
Or better yet, bring it to our next monthly meeting Thursday, June 7, at 3 p.m. in the Pine Island United Methodist Church.
We look forward to continuing our service to the island with your on-going support.
