We are grateful for the many friends who came to support the ministry at our annual fundraising luncheon at the Hilton in Naples. It was a great event with powerful stories, vision for the future, and over 200 friends in attendance. Thank you to all who attended and thank you to the many volunteers who dedicated themselves to making this event a success!
Alonzo Martin, Consul for Mexican Communities led a Mobile Consulate at the Bonita Springs Amigos Center, Saturday, March 10. The Consulate served over 340 Mexican nationals living in South West Florida. Qualifying Mexicans were issued passports and Consular ID cards.
Amigos Center provided 14 volunteers to help aid this effort. In order for Mexicans to receive legal residency or U.S. citizenship, they must have a valid passport.
This outreach helps us develop a relationship of trust and friendship with Mexicans living in our community.
Students came to from Loyola University MD and James Madison University VA to help with work at the Amigos Center in Immokalee. They helped with the pantry and after a long day of work were able to stay for a meal.
An article was in the News-Press today with a write up and photo from the Boston Red Sox service day in Immokalee with the Amigos Center and other agencies.
