Beyond Ourselves, the community service organization of the Punta Gorda Isles Civic Association, meets the third Wednesday of the month at 10 a.m. at the PGICA. Visitors are always welcome at our meetings.

In March, 2012 a group of caring residents of the Punta Gorda Isles Civic Association decided to form an organization with the only mission: to serve others in the community. They felt a need for a structured organization to continue their efforts.

At the beginning Beyond Ourselves decided to focus on three different missions. The first interest is for the homeless of Charlotte County. Beyond Ourselves has been active with the Homeless Coalition, serving meals, collecting food, and sponsoring the annual “Shoebox Event.” This year(2017) 325 shoeboxes were filled with personal toiletry items, and given as gifts to residents of the Homeless Coalition.

The second concern is for the wildlife in the beautiful environment of Charlotte Harbor. The Beyond Ourselves members got together with the Peace River wildlife center to educate others and to help support the wildlife center.

The third mission is to help the children of Charlotte County.

The 2018 “Share the love for the kids" Home Tour was a major fundraiser for Beyond Ourselves, which benefitted the children of Charlotte County, the Back Pack Kidz program and Crossroads HOPE Academy. The tour of 6-7 homes each year provides critical funds for these organizations.

$47,500.00 was raised for these organizations in 2018 with another $225,000 raised in the past. TOTAL to date $272,500. Beyond Ourselves has certainly made a difference for the children of Charlotte County.

In 2016 a new fundraiser named the Beyond Ourselves Bash (BOB) was ­­­held to raise funds for the Beyond Ourselves charities: Charlotte County Homeless, Peace River Wildlife Center, the children of Charlotte County, Backpack Kidz, and Crossroads HOPE Academy. This event was very successful and raised $1200 for each of these five charities in 2016. This event was held again on November 11, 2017, and raised $1700 for each of these charities this year.
