#KindLee – Share your acts of kindness

COVID-19 Masks

Amanda and Brian Bartley, and the rest of their family, have been staying up late making HEPA air filter face masks for those who are most at risk and most in need. They are a true example of #KindLee.

Turkey Drive 2019

The Miguel C. Fernandez III Hispanic Bar Association and #KindLee hosted a Turkey and Thanksgiving Dinner Drive to help families in need.

Easter Egg Hunt @ Thrive at Beachwalk Assisted Living

We would like to thank the Lee County Bar Association for their #Kindlee Community Spotlight in the June 2019 Magazine! Big thanks to Amanda Bartley and Cynthia Duff for making the day a success. And we would not have had this event at all if it were not for the sponsorship from Chartwell Law!

Connor’s Award

Amanda Bartley’s son Connor won the Giving Award at school today! #KindLee began as a tribute to Amanda’s son Trevor, who became an angel too early. When Connor was born, everyone said that he had Trevor’s soul. So this award could not make my heart any happier.

Turkey Drive 2018

TURKEY DRIVE! Miguel C Fernandez III was a remarkable member of #KindLee that we lost last year. Thanks to Karla Campos Andersen, we are now having the Turkey Drive that Miguel wanted to lead. We collected turkeys for Grace Church, who provided Thanksgiving to children who attend J. Collins English Elementary.

I am proud to report that #KindLee was able to feed 165 families!! Thank you to Karla Campos Andersen for leading the #KindLee Turkey Drive in honor of Miguel Fernandez. We still cannot believe that we received 68 turkeys and $1,870 in donations in just 3 days! We are blown away by everyone’s generosity! Thank you all so much to all that made this a possibility!!

#KindLee + PACE

We were honored to be a part of PACE Center for Girls, Lee today. It is amazing to see these young women giving back to the community. They donated blankets for infants to Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida that they made themselves.

Thank you for letting #KindLee sponsor this project.

Feeling blessed because I just finished giving meals to 80 families in Immokalee! I am so proud of Beth Wolt Russo for organizing us. Thank you Beth, Sal Russo, and Good Deals Appliances of Naples for 100 chickens, the Collier County Bar Association family law section for the much needed ice, and Holly Rice for donating sides. Special thanks to Bellacino’s Pizza & Grinders for donating 80 pizzas, and my parents for donating the funds Bellacino’s refused to accept to make sure we had enough food for everyone. Huge thanks to Lee County Bar Association attorneys Stephanie Bendeck and Eunice Gedeon, and our friends Covey Davis, Evi, and Tom.
