SOCKS FOR SENIORS


Again, Destiny Ministries of Southwest Florida, Inc. doesn't just do diapers.  Last winter I decided to put on a new pair of socks that I had just bought for those cold winter nights in Florida.  They were so warm.  Then I thought of how expensive socks can be and how can some of the seniors that we help afford these kind of warm socks or any socks as a matter of fact.  Many seniors today have to choose between food or diapers for their basic needs.  


Right now before the Christmas rush of everyone wanting everything from you and you just needing to find gifts for your friends and family, help us begin our "SOCKS FOR SENIORS" drive.  Help Destiny Ministries of Southwest Florida, Inc. provide a warm pair of socks for our seniors this Christmas.  


Each senior will receive a new pair of socks along with a Christmas stocking stuffed with other goodies that will bring a little joy at Christmas.


We will also be needing other gifts for seniors such as lotions, creams, fragrances, after shave, brushes, scarves, and anything else you may pick up for a senior.

Destiny Diaper Bank will be holding several ADULT diaper drives to assist our local seniors and veterans in need of incontinence supplies.  Right now, once a month, Destiny Mobile Diaper Bank is in 4 locations across SWFL distributing incontinence supplies to our most fragile and vulnerable citizens in need.  Most of these low to mid income seniors and veterans are home-bound due to the fact that they do not have enough supplies to give them quality of life and freedom to move around without the embarrassment of leakage.  Destiny Mobile Diaper Bank is going to help put a STOP to this and make sure that no senior or veteran is left without.  The only way that we can accomplish this is with your help.  The greatest need is for adult pull-ups in larger sizes such as L - XL - XXL.  Some of the seniors and veterans that we serve depend on Destiny Diaper Bank each month for their supplies.  To help us in this HUGE endeavor please call or text (preferred) Rebecca 239-910-8198.

Bringing freedom and quality of life, one diaper at a time.

Right now there are over 100 vendors at this location with many  items for sale.  Because we are in the slow off season, NOW is the time to shop great deals.

CHRISTMAS GIFTS FROM THE KIDS


Destiny Ministries of Southwest Florida, Inc. is more than diapers.  Over the past 11 years, countless strollers, bathtubs, beds, toys, clothing, shower chairs, electric wheelchairs, toilets, and just about anything else you can think of has been donated to bring quality of life and freedom to many families that came to us in need. 


Just a year ago, we held "A Gift For Mom" just before Mother's Day, providing mommy gifts to 152 children.  A child waiting for their gift to be opened is priceless.  I know.  I raised 8 children.  They are excited to receive their gifts, but can't wait till you open your gift from them.


Christmas time is a wonderful time of year to donate and there is a lot of heartfelt joy in knowing that children will not be left out at Christmas in the gift receiving area.  Everyone in SWFL is very generous with their gifts for children.


Destiny Ministries of Southwest Florida is taking a different approach this year.  Our attention will be on assisting children with gift giving to their moms and dads for Christmas.  Now I know that the world a child lives in can be challenging so all living situations will be covered for each child so that they will have gifts for the people that care for them and those they love.  The children that will be selected will be low income families selected by counselors who know the children in need.  We are looking at around 250 children


So lets begin!!!!!!!!!  First of all we are going to need a lot of gifts.  Right now I have a lot of girly gifts but will need more.  The guy gifts are my challenge.  I know as you read this you are thinking of guy gifts, so let's make this happen. 

Collections need to begin now.  One idea is to begin collecting at your place of work,  worship center, or friend's group.  Kids can collect for kids.  


Time is going to fly by so let's get started now.  You can begin dropping off collected gifts at Destiny Diaper Bank, 3660 Central Ave. #5, Ft. Myers, Fl. 33901.  For more information or volunteer opportunity with this event text me at 239-910-8198.
