IMMOKALEE, FL - Lipman Produce is showing its support for family literacy this holiday season with a $10,000 donation to the Collier County Housing Authority’s Family Literacy Academy of Immokalee.

As Lipman explained, the company has a particular interest in youth education, having donated more than $150,000 to educational and life-bettering causes over the past two years. In August alone, Lipman distributed 1,400 backpacks full of school supplies to Immokalee children.

Managed by Jump Start, the Family Literacy Academy of Immokalee provides full-service family literacy programs to Immokalee families with children through age five. Classes are structured to involve the whole family and include:

  • Preschool instruction and educational play (age: 0 to 5)
  • Classes in English as a second language
  • Reading and parenting classes for adults

Great work this holiday season, Lipman Produce!
