Hello AMHH Supporters
It’s a busy time of year here at AMHH! With Thanksgiving just around the corner we want to say thank you for all of the community support we have received this year! With that said, the office is already full of little elves bustling to make the Christmas Holiday merry and bright.
Board Member Spotlight –

Kristen Schaufler - President
Terry Frederick – Vice President
Ashli Munt – Secretary
Eileen Reynolds – Treasurer
Tamar Walters – Director of Fundraising
Small Business Saturday Marketplace
Nestled between Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The day will be complete with shopping from local vendors, entertainment, raffles, games, prizes and 8 non-profits. Come out for a good time and support your local businesses and nonprofit organizations! We will be on hand collecting donations for our Bare Necessities, getting info out to the community on how we assist single moms and their children, signing up volunteers and so much more!
Event Date: Saturday, November 28th
Event Time: 10:00 – 5:00

Greenwell’s Christmas Festival and Toy Walk
Join us for Festivities and fun! AMHH is proud to be one of six local charities coming together with Greenwell’s Family Fun Park to sponsor a toy drive. Race your friends and family on the go cart tracks. Knock a few balls out of the park in any of the batting cages. Then finish your day by testing your skills in the arcade! Have your picture taken with Santa, discount wrist bands when you bring a toy donation.

Event Time: 3:00 – 3:00
Event Location: Mike Greenwell’s, 35 NE Pine Island Rd, Cape Coral
Ho! Ho! Ho! The elves are on the move and are gearing up for our Adopt-A-Family holiday program! While all of our current families have been adopted, we are working on a few to finish the required steps to become active in the program. Once that is done we will have a few more families up for adoption. Please consider getting your workplace, school, church or even book club group involved. Also, we are in need of individual gifts and gift cards to restaurants and popular clothing stores. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 239-895-5341
Gifts of any size will make a difference and are greatly appreciated. To make a donation, send a check payable to
