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 had 26 years of service to the island and we could not have done it without you!
In addition, we want to recognize our more than 80 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 the summer months when our group of volunteers shrinks by half, 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, www.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 on Thursday, June 6th at 3 pm in the Pine Island United Methodist Church.
Any further inquiries can be directed to me at 283-0707. We look forward to continuing our service to the island with your on-going support.
Dianne Higgins, president
