Valentina Grisales stands next to the gumball machine that her Metro PCS store donated to Amigos Center.  The machine is expected to raise about a hundred dollars a month in donations.

Valentina and her family have been long-time friends of the Amigos ministry, having been helped by the immigration ministry, English classes, social services, and church ministry. They are thankful for the work Amigos does in the community changing lives and are eager to give back in any and every way they can.

Anita Dennis, the mother of Peter Dennis our new worker in our Immigration department, is leading St. Michael Lutheran Church in a blanket drive for Immokalee. Once the blankets are collected, they will deliver the much needed blankets to the Amigos Center. During the colder months of Florida, the nights can be long for families without heat and without sufficient blankets. Thank you St. Michael for helping us help these families.

Excerpts from the News Press:

Eight individuals were honored last night in several categories for their strong work ethic and contributions to the Hispanic community at the 12th annual Hispanic Achievement Awards and Hall of Fame Banquet. About 180 people attended the event at the Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre in Fort Myers.

“Hispanic business people do so well in helping to cultivate their own businesses from the ground up, and as I think all of you know, it’s the small businesses that are the fundamental framework of the economy,” said Lee County Commissioner Ray Judah, who spoke at the event.
