FORT MYERS, Fla. (November 30, 2023) – As the holiday season approaches, Community Cooperative is thrilled to announce the launch of their heartwarming holiday outreach initiatives, “Adopt a Senior” and “Adopt a Family,” aimed at spreading joy and support to seniors and families within our community.

The “Adopt a Senior” program is designed to brighten the holidays for seniors who may be experiencing loneliness or hardship during this festive time. Volunteers and community members are invited to participate by providing thoughtful gifts and companionship to seniors, enhancing their holiday season with warmth and love.

Simultaneously, the “Adopt a Family” initiative seeks to support families facing financial challenges by matching them with caring individuals within the community. By fulfilling holiday wish lists and providing essentials, this program aims to alleviate some of the financial burdens families may encounter during this holiday season.

“These initiatives embody the spirit of giving and compassion that defines our community,” said Stefanie Ink-Edwards, CEO at Community Cooperative. “The holidays can be particularly difficult for many, and these programs allow us to come together and make a meaningful difference in the lives of those who need it most.”

This initiative fosters a sense of community, love, and support during a time it is needed the most. Community Cooperative encourages individuals passionate in making a difference to join the initiative and create lasting memories and connections this holiday season.
