Procacci Brothers Recognized for Supporting Internship Program
PHILADELPHIA, PA – Together with its affiliated growing operations, Ag-Mart Produce and Gargiulo, Procacci Brothers was recognized by the National Migrant & Seasonal Head Start Association (NMSHSA) for their continued support of the organization’s Summer Internship Program.
NMSHSA’s Summer Internship Program is designed to foster personal and professional growth for high-achieving former Migrant & Seasonal Head Start students currently enrolled in college. The program takes place over the course of seven weeks in Washington D.C., where students of all backgrounds are given the opportunity to build professional contacts and achieve career opportunities at non-profit organizations, federal agencies, and other positions on Capitol Hill, according to a press release.
During the NMSHSA’s biannual conference in Tysons Corner, VA, members from the organization and Procacci’s very own Lou Struble were presented with a framed photograph from acclaimed artist Celia Roberts’ portfolio of photographs that celebrates the grace and dignity of migrant farm workers.
“The National Migrant & Seasonal Head Start Association has had such a positive impact on the lives of our farm workers and so many other farm workers nationwide,” said Struble. “It’s truly an honor to have the opportunity to support their fantastic internship program. The internship exemplifies the impact that NMSHSA programs have had on establishing the building blocks of success for the children of migrant workers.”
