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.
