The Center is accepting toys for children of all ages but is in particular need of items for pre-teens and teenagers, such as sports equipment, art supplies, board games, journals, gift cards, jewelry, purses, makeup, backpacks, hats and bikes. Items must be new and unwrapped.

The Dr. Piper Center, which has been carrying on the ideals of community service exemplified by Dr. Ella Piper, has been making a positive impact in the lives of frail elderly and children with special needs in the Fort Myers area for 47 years with the assistance of Senior Volunteers from our community.
