Myers, Brettholtz & Company employees provided PACE Center for Girls staff, volunteers and students a home-cooked Thanksgiving lunch on Monday at their new school location off of Evans Avenue in Fort Myers.
The lunch included turkey, ham, stuffing, casseroles, mashed and sweet potatoes, gravy, salad and a variety of desserts.
“This has been one of our favorite community outreach events for several years,” said Lori Sampson-Wilson, shareholder with the firm. “Our employees really enjoy making home-cooked holiday favorites for these girls but also personally delivering and serving the PACE students.”
PACE Center for Girls of Lee County offers year-round counseling and academic services for girls, ages 12 through 18, who are facing challenges such as foster care, domestic violence, abuse and neglect, death of a parent, substance abuse, and/or family history of incarceration. At the request of community leaders and elected officials, PACE Lee was established in 2007 and since opening its doors, has helped nearly 600 girls find success in school, generate a positive relationship with their families and peers, and become productive members of our community.
