On Wednesday, January 15th, the Naples Children & Education Foundation, founders of the Naples Wine Festival and Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation hosted a “Build-Out and Celebration Day” at Youth Haven. More than 30 NCEF trustees and staff members built a community garden and donated items such as sports equipment, toiletries and clothing. We’re grateful for their ongoing support!
