The Guadalupe Center of Immokalee seeks businesses and individuals for underwriting and donations for its annual Holiday Gift Shop, which provides toys, gifts and clothing for more than 800 Immokalee children. Recipient families are chosen based on financial need. The typical family of four typically lives on less than $14,000 per year.
Guadalupe Center President Barbara Oppenheim said that in addition to toys, gifts and clothing, corporate underwriters are needed to sponsor one night each of the five-day Holiday Gift Shop. The underwriter contributes $2,000 and provides volunteers on their designated night.
“Wells Fargo has pledged to continue its “Wells Fargo Wednesday” tradition,” Oppenheim said, “and we hope their generosity inspires others to follow their example.”
Donations are being accepted at The Guadalupe Upscale Resale and Consignment Shop at 8100 Trail Blvd. near the intersection of U.S. 41 and Vanderbilt Beach Road, and Miller’s Ale House near the Hollywood Theaters on Naples Blvd in Naples, and at the Seminole Casino Immokalee.
