Children of Charlotte County

Beyond Ourselves, the Punta Gorda Isles Civic Association community service organization, sponsored the 2015 "Share the Love for the Kids Home Tour" on January 31, 2015. This was the group's 4th annual fundraiser to raise money to help the children of Charlotte County.

New Operation Cooper Street is an after-school facility that provides children with a safe, nurturing place to go. The children are provided snacks and dinners, given remedial help with their schoolwork, and stimulated with various cultural and enriching activities. Beyond Ourselves has given over $75,000 to this organization in just four years.

The Back Pack Kidz Program, sponsored by the YaYa Girls, serves the weekend food needs of over 1,500 children in Charlotte County. Students, identified by school administrators, are given backpacks filled with non-perishable food every Friday. Beyond Ourselves is proud to be able to help support this effort to feed the children of our county and has given $50,000.00 to this program in just 3 years.
