Recently, on Wednesday evenings,
from 6 to 8 p.m., Dr. Daryl
Donovan, senior pastor of Sanibel
Community Church, invited residents and
visitors to come for coffee and questions.
They came, and they had many questions
to ask. Gathering at the Carpenter’s Café
on the campus of the church, Pastor
Daryl fielded questions that come his way.
From time to time, he could call on “Siri”
to assist, or phone a friend.
Sessions are still going on this month
at the Carpenter’s Café on Wednesday
evenings. Soup, sandwiches and specialty
coffees are available beginning at 5 p.m.
Sanibel Community Church is located
at 1740 Periwinkle Way (next to Jerry’s
Market). The café is located on the north
side of the campus. For more informa-
tion, call 472-2684 or www.sanibel-

FISH A Lifeline
At FISH of SanCap, many clients
are faced with the decision of pay-
ing medical bills versus electricity
or rent, or putting food on the table.
Through a partnership with and
funding from the Zonta Foundation of
Southwest Florida, FISH may be able to
assist with certain medical bills for quali-
One particular client, a single mother
of two children, was a recipient of such
assistance. This mom was struggling
financially while trying to stabilize a
household crisis. She often felt tired and
weak with strong and severe headaches.
During a medical exam, stress tests
revealed a possible stroke, which required
further testing. Using funding from the
Zonta grant, FISH was able to assist by
helping to pay for additional testing and
continuing care. In a follow up counsel-
ing session, FISH learned that she is
feeling better and working through her
“I wish to express my heartfelt
gratitude for your help in financing my
health,” she said. ‘This assistance is for
me and my children a bright ray of light
representing good and caring people –
those who work and volunteer at FISH
– who are attentive to the difficulties of
others. This financial aid helps my family
greatly. Now that my health condition is
under control, I feel I am better able to
manage my household and provide for
the needs of our family.”
All financial assistance clients must
first go through a detailed client intake
and provide certain financial documenta-
tion to FISH. Each client is evaluated pri-
vately, on an individual and per instance
basis. There is no guarantee of financial
assistance from FISH.

ing Hands program, contact Christine
Swiersz or Jessi Zeigler at 472-4775.
