Tamiami Hyundai Gives Back – Charities We Love
Tamiami Hyundai – being a long-time standing pillar in the community knows that because of our customers and staff we have been very blessed. We do not take that lightly so every year we chose different local and nationwide charities to be a part of, not only monetarily, but also the giving of our time. Below are some of the charities we’re involved with this year.

To provide safe, quality, affordable education and care for children and parents from low-income working families and to prepare the children for kindergarten, ready to read and ready to learn!
The 96 students enrolled at Fun Time Early Childhood Academy come from low-income working families. Your donation helps to bridge the gap between the parent’s sliding-scale payment and the unfunded $8,200 cost this year of educating and caring for each student.
Our students benefit from the breadth of services provided—dental care, home-style cooked meals, swim lessons, violin lessons, art, theater, and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math). Our exceptional staff and our 40 volunteer tutors give generously of their time to help our wonderful kids.
Laces of Love Charitable Foundation, Inc.
Laces Of Love is a 501-c-3 not-for-profit organization that provides NEW shoes (usually sneakers) to low-income and disadvantaged children in Collier and Lee Counties, Florida, and educates the public about the needs of these children.
New sneakers and monetary donations (100% of which are used to purchase shoes unless otherwise designated) are extremely important and gratefully accepted. Laces Of Love also facilitate the donation of cleats and sport shoes to student-athletes who, without proper shoes, would not be able to play their sport.
Naples Performing Arts Center
Established in 2012, The Naples Performing Arts Center provides excellence in arts education through a diverse curriculum, while fostering creativity, building self-esteem, developing our students’ love for the arts and equipping them with life skills.
All students, regardless of their ethnicity, intellectual capabilities and financial status, should have the opportunity to participate in the arts and develop these life skills. NPAC was started in 2012 by Founder and President, Lori Oliver. She believes in providing the community with a venue for children to have access to performing arts education. NPAC offers a School of Dance, School of Drama and the School of Music where students can develop their skills and talents.
NPAC also offers a year-round program for students with special needs. The “I’m a Star” program gives students with intellectual challenges numerous opportunities to be “stars” and shine on the stage. Every week they are challenged with their music theory curriculum, vocal and acting classes, and specially designed choreography. Every child should have the opportunity to be a STAR!
