Lipman Family Farms and Redlands Christian Migrant Association to Host a Groundbreaking Ceremony; Jaime Weisinger and Isabel Garcia Comment
IMMOKALEE, FL - Lipman Family Farms has pulled back the curtain on an upcoming groundbreaking, announcing that the company will be hosting a ceremony for the new Lipman Family Campus for Children and Families in Immokalee, Florida, in collaboration with Redlands Christian Migrant Association (RCMA).
“We’re honored to break ground with RCMA, building a literal and metaphorical foundation that will guarantee a bright future for the migrant community in Immokalee,” shared Jaime Weisinger, Director of Community and Government Relations for Lipman Family Farms and fourth-generation family member. “Over the long-standing, multi-generational relationship we have had with RCMA, they have proven to be a trusted steward of the education and welfare of the children of our community.”
The groundbreaking for the new campus will take place on May 25, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. EST at 3200 Lake Trafford Road in Immokalee.
Lipman Family Farms has been a long–time supporter of RCMA. Last month, the company made a $3 million donation to the association, marking the largest donation it has made to any one organization. According to a press release, the gift will support efforts to expand RCMA’s charter schools throughout the state of Florida, as well as support the new Lipman Family Campus for Children and Families in Immokalee.
“We are grateful for the Lipman family’s commitment to supporting our shared community,” commented Isabel Garcia, Executive Director of RCMA. “Their generous donation is a historic one for our organization and a reflection of their commitment to the families and future generations of Immokalee.”
