Cape Coral Charity: Giving Back to the Community

Posted by Diane On August 15th

Cape Coral residents are extremely passionate about…

…bettering the community and subsequently are involved in countless local and national charity projects.

Relay for Life is one event that brings the Cape Coral charity community together.

Each year thousands of Cape Coral residents gather at a local high school to walk and raise money for cancer.

With food, games, and music, teams of people have fun while raising funds to fight cancer and increase awareness of cancer prevention and treatment.

In 2009 alone, Cape Coral raised $129,000 during the 24-hour event – just one example of the generosity in the Cape Coral community.

The city is also known for embracing diversity.

At Pop’s Café in City Hall, the eatery is operated and staffed by “Special Populations”.

In fact, 36 City of Cape Coral employees, who are adults with developmental disabilities, rotate job sites throughout the week.

Pops Café is just one of the many job and training opportunities that the City of Cape Coral affords the participants enrolled at  “Special Populations”.

Cape Coral is also home to the Tony Rotino Senior Center.

This center provides citizens 55 years and older with social, recreational, and educational programs that sustain and improve their quality of life in the community.

With computer classes, craft classes, monthly book discussions, writing classes to improve literary skills, card games, and field trips it’s easy to feel young again.
