Midland IRA loves to give back to the community by taking the time to volunteer or donate money to help local non-profits. So for this holiday season, Dave Owens, president of Midland IRA, and the rest of the staff picked five charities that touched their lives in some way. “It’s important for local businesses to support their community and give back any way they can,” says Owens. The five local charities that were chosen are Make-A-Wish Foundation, Miracle Limbs, Ronald McDonald House, Special Equestrians and Our Mother’s Home.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation is located in Bonita Springs, and grants wishes to children all over Southwest Florida. They grant the wishes of children that have a life-threatening medical condition. Each wish takes $5000 to grant and range anywhere from meeting their favorite celebrity to having the ultimate Disney vacation. Miracle Limbs-Courage in Motion is based out of Naples, and is a non-profit organization that provides physical, psychological and financial support for amputees. They provide care for people all over Southwest Florida. The Ronald McDonald House located in Fort Myers serves as a home-away-from-home for families in Southwest Florida whose children are seriously ill or injured and are receiving medical treatment from the Golisano Children’s Hospital. Their facility is open 24/7 and provides families with a private bedroom suite which includes a fully stocked kitchen, dining room, bathroom, living room, laundry room and activities room.
The Special Equestrians is a non-profit located in Fort Myers that is a therapeutic horseback riding program for children and adults with disabilities. It is a volunteer run organization and 100% of all proceeds go to the support of the program. The program supports 12 horses and services more than 75 disabled riders. Our Mother’s Home is a non-profit in Fort Myers whose mission is to keep teen mothers from foster care, human trafficking and other traumas together with their children in a caring and safe home. They provide housing, education, life skills, parenting classes and physical and mental health care for up to eight teen mothers and their babies. “We chose these organizations because they are making a great impact on our community and changing lives in the process,” says Dave Owens.
