Courtesy of WINK-TV, this unique one-hour broadcast will share our mission with the community and explain the programs and initiatives we’ve established over the past 21 years to support the at-risk and underprivileged children of Collier County. Through a combination of live and pre-recorded segments, we’ll focus on everything NCEF does for the kids. You’ll have the opportunity to hear directly from beneficiaries about the effects our programs have on their lives and families, as well as reflections from our Founders and Trustees about the importance of the work we do. The broadcast will offer the community an opportunity to make a pledge of support online, so that our work may continue.
