Charity for Change launches interactive video series GiverTV
Charity for Change, the Collier County nonprofit behind the classroom-based Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) Giver Program, announces the launch of interactive video series GiverTV. The approximately 10-minute videos are hosted on charityforchange.org
and Charity for Change’s YouTube channel
. Videos feature the program’s mascots, Giver and U2Can, teaching foundational skills that include character education and service learning. Episodes include real-world examples of key character traits and activities families can do together to help their community. New videos will be added regularly. “With distance learning and children losing connectivity through school, it’s increasingly more important that they have the tools to deal with isolation, stress and anxiety,” said Karen Conley, founder and CEO of Charity for Change.

Boys & Girls Club providing meals to kids on weekends
Because local school districts have daily food distributions, the Boys & Girls Club of Collier County distributes food only two days during the week—Tuesdays in Immokalee and Fridays at its office in East Naples. But families also need food on the weekends. In addition to handing out groceries with Harry Chapin two days a week, the club is also providing meals during the weekend. In just six weeks, the organization handed out more than 9,000 hot meals. The club serves both breakfast and lunch every Saturday and Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the club office on Davis Boulevard or at its Immokalee location on Roberts Avenue.
