In keeping with its annual tradition, the Democratic Women’s Club of Marco Island—which serves communities across East Naples—conducted a toy and household goods drive in conjunction with its holiday social held December 10. The effort resulted in a variety of items for preschoolers to fifth graders along with small appliances, cookware and bedding
Gifts for children and their parents were donated to Manatee Elementary School, which has a poverty rate of more than 88 percent among its students. Along with several other local organizations, the DWCMarco has supported the school for several years and encourages its members to engage via donations and volunteer time.
Community members interested in joining the club and supporting its charitable efforts along with promotion of voters’ rights can go to dwcmarco.org or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
