– The Kiwanis Club of Fort Myers South held the club’s annual Breakfast with Santa holiday party for the All Children’s Outpatient Care of Fort Myers patients and their siblings. Over 250 people enjoyed breakfast, face painting, games, cookie decorating and crafts.
Frank Poirier volunteered his time to play Santa and distributed approximately 300 children’s books collected by the Kiwanis Club of Fort Myers South through three book collection sites: Priority Marketing, Mills-Price & Associates, Inc. and Bean, Whitaker, Lutz and Kareh, Inc. The Kiwanis Club of Fort Myers Beach donated $130 to the book drive. Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre actors sang carols, and Brian Jones donated his services as DJ at the event. Businesses that donated to the breakfast included: Gulf Shore Bakery, Sweet Tomatoes and Sun Harvest Citrus.
The Kiwanis Club of Fort Myers South is looking for more service-minded individuals and business professionals who would like to make a direct impact on the community through volunteering. Meetings are held every Tuesday at 7:15 a.m. at Edison State College.
