Ministry builds bridges for elderly, fills the gap

Hart Felt Ministries gathered its most fervent supporters at the TPC Sawgrass Clubhouse Sept. 29 for an evening of fun, fellowship and fundraising. Through its mission to support seniors through a network of community volunteers, the organization provides, at no charge, non-medical services that build lasting relationships with elders in our community.

By demonstrating love and compassion, the organization’s many helpful donors and volunteers bring much-needed care to our area’s frail seniors. From building wheelchair ramps for homeowners, running errands, performing light housekeeping, getting seniors to the doctor and other outstanding services, the organization is helping defray the impact of loneliness and solitude for our aging neighbors.

A special guest appearance was made by artist Anne Neilson, who “paints with a purpose” and donates proceeds of her artwork to charity. With a signed copy of her book, “Angels In Our Midst,” Neilson donated 45 percent of each sale to Hart Felt ministries. Neilson, who grew up in Jacksonville, currently lives in Charlotte, where she is raising her family and running the Anne Neilson Fine Art gallery.

Hart Felt Ministries volunteers donated a total of 9,316 hours of service in 2016, 1,462 of those were spent building wheelchair ramps. For more information about Hart Felt Ministries visit or call (904) 861-2799.
