Colden Charities

Colden Charities Inc., a registered 501c3 organization,  has been active in our community as well as helping others around the world. Some of the projects we have been involved in are:
  • Post tsunami rebuilding in Galle, Sri Lanka
  • Post Katrina cleanup and supply distribution in Ocean Springs, MS
  • Partial funding and building an orphanage for underprivileged children in Oropesa, Peru
  • Support for Walter Reed Army Hospital in Washington DC
  • Volunteer at local soup kitchens in Saint Augustine FL
  • Support for the Wounded Warrior Project
  • Post Hurricane Matthew, Irma, Maria relief

Currently we are active in supporting an organization called Playnet Inc. operating in the Philippines which helps children get access to education that do not have access to the public education system. Playnet helps poor children of all faiths attend schools that are established with the assistance of local parents and community members.  The schools are not the type of school that we send our children to in the United States.  School houses are often one room buildings, books are limited and text books are non-existent. Electricity is not even a given in these areas. The children that attend these schools are grateful for the opportunity to learn and are an inspiring group. We are proud to partner with Playnet Inc. to give these kids an opportunity.

Our 2019 fundraiser will be kicking off on August 10th! Funds from the 2018 fundraiser went in part to infrastructure issues. There are several school houses that are in very poor condition structurally and we have been making incremental changes as funds allow. This year we are raising money to help with some structural repairs for safety and also for bathrooms.  Most of these schools do not have a bathroom!  At least they have a roof thanks to all who have contributed in the past. The goal is to continue to provide an option for education for as many under-privileged children as possible in a safe and secure environment. There are no other options for most of these kids. Your assistance is greatly appreciated not just from those of us at Colden Charities but by the children being educated by Playnet as well. There are a record number of kids enrolled this year, so your donations are making a difference!
