For four years now, the Marco Island Civitan Club has held a May Baby Shower to benefit the Friends of Foster Children Forever Program.
Program Director Vanessa Estrada told the group about the need for help at this moment due to the opioid epidemic, especially in Charlotte and Lee counties. The children that are removed from their mothers or from hurtful situations are brought to the foster care system in Collier County. Four hundred children are actually in their care.
Marco Island Civitan Club President Bob Kircher presented Vanessa Estrada with three donated children’s bikes and helmets, and club members brought children’s toiletries and clothing to help the program.
Vanessa Estrada thanked the Civitans for their generosity during all these years.
