TALLAHASSEE CHURCH YOUTH GROUP VISITS
JOSEPH H. MESSINA CHILDREN’S CENTER
FORT MYERS, FLA., June 25, 2012 – The Joseph H. Messina Children’s Center got a fresh coat of paint on two dozen doors recently, when the Tallahassee First Baptist Church youth choir paid a visit.
The visit was arranged by the United Way of Lee County. Child Care of Southwest Florida Operations Director Nancy Coker said the group of about 50 adults and youngsters wanted to come to Lee County for a volunteer project.
“We were more than happy to host them for a workday. They sang for our kids, then our kids sang. They were wonderfully mature and helpful,” Coker said.
In addition to painting doors, the group planted some flowers and vegetables and cleaned up around the property.
The Joseph H. Messina Children’s Center is licensed to care for 105 children from infancy to age 8. Enrollment is now open for the Voluntary Pre-K program, which begins this fall. The child care center is open Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 11:30 p.m.
