Each holiday season we select one charitable organization to focus our efforts of giving back to our local, Southwest Florida community and to benefit those in need. This year, we are proud to partner with the Dr. Piper Center to provide toys to children on Christmas Day at their annual party. We are collecting toys for boys and girls of all ages, at our office until the week before Christmas, when they will be picked up and taken to the Dr. Piper Center. The presents will then be gifted on Christmas Day to the children at the 97th annual Christmas gala.
The Dr. Piper Center is so named because of Dr. Ella Piper, the accomplished philanthropist and citizen of Fort Myers in the early 20th century. In 1915, Dr. Piper began hosting annual Christmas tree parties for children in Dunbar Heights and the event has taken place every year since then.
Today, the Dr. Piper Center has grown and enhances the social and economic well-being of Southwest Florida residents. The organization strives to make positive changes for the elderly, at risk youth, foster children and special needs children.
Please help us by donating to this wonderful organization this holiday season. Stop by our offices at 32 Barkley Circle, Fort Myers, Fla. and bring in a toy to leave under the tree.
We wish you all Happy Holidays and hope you have a wonderful New Year!
