Beyond Ourselves is the community service organization of the Punta Gorda Isles Civic Association (PGICA).
In March, 2012 a group of caring residents of the Punta Gorda Isles Civic Association decided to form an organization with their goal: to serve others in the community. They felt a need for a structured organization to continue their efforts. This marked the beginning of Beyond Ourselves.
Beyond Ourselves focuses on three different missions:
Mission 1: Helping the children of Charlotte County. Beyond Ourselves’ major fund raiser to benefit these children is the Share the Love for the Kids Home Tour.
Mission 2: The Homeless of Charlotte County. Beyond Ourselves has been active with the Homeless Coalition by organizing various types of donations, including fund raising.
Mission 3: The Peace River Wildlife Center which supports the wildlife in the beautiful environment of Charlotte Harbor. Beyond Ourselves contributes volunteers, food for the rescued birds as well as monetary donations.
We meet on the third Wednesday of the month at 10:00 am at the PGICA center. Visitors are always welcome to attend the meetings.
