At the recommendation of its Civic Involvement Committee, The Community Trust Fund of The League Club, Inc. recently awarded $10,000  to The Shelter for Abused Women & Children. These funds will be used to purchase adult bikes with locks and lights, small appliances and bedding for the emergency shelter.

The grant was presented to Shelter Executive Director Linda Oberhaus during a Briefcase Breakfast, April 10, 2015 at the Naples Sailing & Yacht Club.

“The needs are great and the decisions that our grants review committee must make are difficult,” said Donna Loomis, President of The League Club. “We are grateful to our membership of nearly 600 local women, our special supporters in our Circle of Friends, and other community supporters and commercial sponsors whose financial generosity makes these grants possible each year.”
