Nursing Home Visit

For the second consecutive year, students from Southwest Florida College volunteered to visit local nursing homes and spend time with the residents. Headed by James Jones, Freshman Studies Program Manager, the students visited Manor Care and Evans Health Care facilities in Fort Myers on December 19.

For many of the elderly residents, the SWFC students were the only visitors they had this holiday season.

Toys for Tots

The students, faculty, and staff of the Port Charlotte campus participated in the Toys for Tots program this December. The campus collected two boxes full of toys along with two children’s bicycles. Due to the amount of new toys donated, Southwest Florida College was presented with the Commander’s Award by the Toys for Tots organization.
