The Shelter recently received a check for $240,000 from the Naples Children & Education Foundation, founders of the Naples Winter Wine Festival. This funding will provide a variety of children’s programs and services at The Shelter.

The Naples Children & Education Foundation is committed to supporting charitable programs that improve the physical, emotional and educational lives of underprivileged and at-risk children in Collier County. Its primary fundraiser, the Naples Winter Wine Festival, is the largest global event of its kind, and has raised in excess of $135 million in its first 15 years for annual grants to over 40 beneficiary organizations and 7 strategic initiatives.
