Crossroads Hope Academy - Press Release - As you have seen in the paper and heard thru the grapevine, Crossroads Hope Academy did not fare well with Irma. There is substantial damage to their facility. Although many from the community are helping with construction and volunteering, the need is still overwhelming.

Crossroads Hope Academy is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) home and charter school for foster boys who have had multiple failed placements in the Florida foster care system. They can house up to 24 boys at one time, and they usually are at capacity.
PGICA, Beyond Ourselves, Seafarers, Paradise Friends and Just For Fun clubs are sponsoring a benefit for Crossroads on September 26 at Punta Gorda Isles Civic Association, 2001 Shreve Street, Punta Gorda. A minimum donation is $15 per person(we encourage a larger donation), which includes your donation, drinks,and appetizers. Musical entertainment will be provided from 6:30 to 8pm.
Please come and celebrate Irma's sparing real damage to most of our Punta Gorda homes. Join friends and neighbors to share your contribution to Crossroads Hope Acedemy's rebuilding and share your tales and adventures during or fleeing from Irma!

Beyond Ourselves, the community service organization of the Punta Gorda Isles Civic Association, meets the third Wednesday of the month at 10 a.m. at the PGICA. Visitors are always welcome at our meetings.

In March, 2012 a group of caring residents of the Punta Gorda Isles Civic Association decided to form an organization with the only mission: to serve others in the community. They felt a need for a structured organization to continue their efforts.

At the beginning Beyond Ourselves decided to focus on three different missions. The first interest is for the homeless of Charlotte County. Beyond Ourselves has been active with the Homeless Coalition, serving meals, collecting food, and sponsoring the annual “Shoebox Event.” Last year over 270 shoeboxes were filled with personal toiletry items, and given as gifts to residents of the Homeless Coalition.

The second concern is for the wildlife in the beautiful environment of Charlotte Harbor. The Beyond Ourselves members got together with the Peace River wildlife center to educate others and to help support the wildlife center.

The third mission is to help the children of Charlotte County.

The 2017 “Share the love for the kids" Home Tour was a major fundraiser for Beyond Ourselves, which benefitted New Operation Cooper St., Inc., the Back Pack Kidz program and AMIKids Crossroads. The tour of 7 homes provided critical funds for these organizations.

$46,000.00 was raised for these organizations in 2017 with another $196,000 raised in the past. TOTAL to date $238,000. Beyond Ourselves has certainly made a difference for the children of charlotte county.

In 2016 a new fundraiser named the Beyond Ourselves Bash (BOB) was ­­­held to raise funds for the Beyond Ourselves charities: Charlotte County Homeless, Peace River Wildlife Center, New Operation Cooper Street, Backpack Kidz, and AMIKids Crossroads. This event was very successful and raised $1200 for each of these charities. This event will be held again on November 11, 2017.
