For the first time in two years The League Club was able to host an event that was emotional and rewarding.
Twenty-seven grants were awarded to area nonprofits in Collier and Lee Counties this month by The League Club of Naples, Florida. These grants will address crucial recovery needs due to the severe impact of COVID-19 on mental health issues in the areas of health, education, the arts, and our environment.
President Melissa McClayton said, “The heart and soul of The League Club is our Community Involvement Committee. For over 3 decades they have addressed critical needs of at risk adults and children in the areas of food scarcity, shelter, education, and the arts through grants to nonprofit agencies in Collier and Lee Counties.”
“The CIC will continue to direct our resources to programs as they pertain to crucial recovery needs resulting from COVID-19. This year, special consideration was given to projects addressing mental health issues created by COVID,” said Constance Godley, TLC Community VP.
The League Club has given over $5.6M in Philanthropic Giving in 35 years. This year the grants will provide over 100,000 classess, tutoring hours and job training courses, over 106,000 meals for underserved children, adults and seniors in our community, funds for healthcare and emergency services for 7,038 patients and support for mental wellness and treatment of mental illness for 7,542 citizens of Collier and Lee counties!
