We would like to thank everyone who attended our open house on May 19th to celebrate our recent renovations in Immokalee. During our open house, Bonnie Williamson-Craven was presented with a plaque as a token of appreciation for her selfless contributions of time, talent and funding for our Center in Immokalee. As we settle into our newly remodeled space, we pray for continued growth in our outreach in sharing the Gospel as well as growth in our English and adult education programs.
See our previous post with pictures from the renovations.
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.
On January 23rd, one food pantry in a series of many mobile food pantries, 343 families were served by the Harry Chapin mobile food pantry at the Amigos Center in Immokalee. This pantry was sponsored by YUM! brands. Thank you Harry Chapin, Yum!, and all our volunteers who are helping feed hungry families and fighting to end hunger in America!

Words can not begin to describe how amazing this day was. 643 families were served with the help of over 40 volunteers. Because of the support of our community, volunteers and partners, these families were able to share in the Thanksgiving holiday with a nice meal. Praise God for all things.
