Helping Neighbors:  Here Comes Peter Cotton Tail


F.I.S.H. OF SANCAP will be assembling Easter dinner and Easter Bunny baskets for those needing a hand up during the holiday. The dinner basket for families contains everything needed for a healthy, festive Easter dinner. FISH will also be assembling Easter Bunny baskets for children filled with candy, small toys, school supplies and more. Items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste and candy were graciously donated by CVS Pharmacy, and McIntosh Books held a book sale on behalf of FISH for books and other items that will be included in the Easter Bunny baskets.

Demand for holiday baskets has increased and this year as neighbors continue to recoup from lost wages and jobs in the summer red tide months, as well as a slower than expected start to the island ‘season’. FISH will provide approximately 80 Easter dinner Baskets and 50 bunny Baskets this year. Donations for the program come from a variety of donors and businesses as well as from the FISH Holiday Food Program Campaign held annually in November and December.

Distribution this year will occur on April 17-18 from 10:00am until 4:00pm at the FISH Walk-In Center located at 2430 Periwinkle Way, Sanibel. “Basket recipients are those known to FISH through usage of other FISH programs such as the Food Pantry and Emergency Financial Assistance. Food is picked up and baskets are assembled by FISH volunteers who make every effort to ensure the holiday is a special one for our neighbors. “I want to thank all the volunteers who pick up food and donations, assemble baskets and help on distribution days,” states Maria Espinoza, FISH Walk-In Center Manager, who coordinates the program.
