Friends of Foster Children of SWFL Inc. (FFC) is pleased to announce they are now accepting vehicle donations through a partnership with Naples Auto Donation Center Inc. (NADC).
NADC is a local charitable vehicle donation program that simplifies vehicle donation processing for Collier County non-profits.
“Non-profits are often hesitant to accept donated vehicles, because of all of the paperwork and associated costs. NADC eliminates the burden, while giving the donor the freedom to donate their car, RV or motorcycle as a charitable gift to a local charity,” said Bill Walsh, vice president.
FFC President Doug Campbell is excited about the opportunity. “Anytime a non-profit can increase their revenue without cost or liability, it’s a great opportunity,” he said.
FFC provides local abused, abandoned and neglected children with the social, education and financial support the state does not. Funds generated from donated vehicles will help support FFC’s various programs. To find out more about NADC, please visit www.nadckids.com or call 239-692-9840.

The state only provides the very basic of necessities, such as room and board for children. Friends of Foster Children provide what the state does not, including enrichment activities (football, gymnastics and music lesson fees), clothing, birthday gifts and tutoring.
The average length of stay in foster care is 33 months and 18% of the children are in care for five years or longer. The FCC believes education is the key to breaking the cycle of abuse and poverty in families and has implemented The Education Train tutoring program to address the individual academic needs of children in the foster care system. Many of these children are falling behind in school. These academic delays are often a result of the trauma of abuse and/or neglect, frequent placement changes, and switching schools often causing turmoil and stress. Highly trained tutors work one-on-one with the student. Tutoring is conducted at the student’s home, with a caregiver present, or in another public facility where adults are present.
