Charities
We all joined Estero Newcomers Club to meet new people, find the best places to shop, eat, and explore. However, we also try to help those who need it the most. Our charity fundraisers include luncheon raffles, presentations from charities from around the Estero, Fort Myers area each month, and in the months of November and December, Operation Santa, a program of Children's Network of SouthWest Florida. This program helps over 3,000 children during the holiday by providing presents and gift cards. Our club was super generous in 2021 with monetary donations that we used to purchase gift cards. Providing gift cards was the most needed way post-Covid for our club to be involved with Operation Santa.
 
These are some of the charities we have partnered with in 2021 and 2022 are: Harry Chapin Food Bank of SWFL, WellFIT Girls, Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge, Our Mothers Home, Dress for Success of SWFL, Special Equestrians, Interfaith Charities Food Bank, Blessings in a Backpack SWFL, Gulf Coast Humane Society, Valerie's House, Eva's Closet and Foundation, and more. -- as of June 2022--
 
Over the years we have helped many different charities and will continue to do so.  Our members are very, very generous!
