Congratulations to Maria Herrera on the transfer of her Board of Immigration Appeals accreditation to Amigos Center! She is now recognized at both our Golden Gate office and Bonita Springs office!
Maseca was flying off the Harry Chapin Food Bank of Southwest Florida, Inc. truck during a Saturday distribution at Amigos Center in Immokalee! Countless volunteers from Our Savior Lutheran Church and School made a trip from St. Petersburg and partnered with Amigos Center local volunteers to make this a success. Hundreds of families received 50lbs of Maseca, a staple in many households. What a tremendous event! Thank you to all who made this possible!
Our food distribution continues to be a strong ministry as we continue to partner with Harry Chapin who recently sent us over 42,000 pounds of corn meal to allow this event to happen. This is a staple that is used for tamales and tortillas in the Latino community while the Haitian community also makes a soup with it. Although our funds are low, through Harry Chapin Food Bank we can continue to provide the much needed food for the people of Immokalee. We can always use donations of small bottles of oil and also lard.
