Pine Island FISH Inc. is the lead agency for the yearly Christmas Basket Brigade that benefits families and seniors. The organization also provides non-emergency transportation; emergency financial assistance for rent, utilities, medical and other expenses; the loan of mobility equipment and respite; and in-touch services at no cost to qualified island residents.
Thanks to Carol King, the FISH organization has a hand-crafted dollhouse available as a fund-raiser for the 2013 Christmas Basket Brigade. The house is on display at the Stonegate Bank on the corner of Stringfellow Road and Sunset Lane in St. James City.
Tickets are $5 each and are available at Stonegate Bank and Spa 33 in Matlacha. All monies collected from the drawing will go to the Basket Brigade to purchase gifts for local families and seniors.
The drawing for the dollhouse will take place on Friday, Dec. 20, at the Christmas Basket Brigade present wrapping party. Purchasers need not be present to win; the brigade can assist in local deliver but do not ship.
For additional information, contact FISH at 239-283-4442. The mailing address is P.O. Box 357, Matlacha, FL 33993
