Taste The Impact - Immakolee, FL
Once again, we would like to thank your organization for supporting our mission. Thanks to your generosity and support, we have IMPACTED many young lives and provided them with the skills and hands-on experience needed to be successful in their career paths. For the 2021-2022 school year, we served 130 students and provided 22 paid work-base internships to high school students. For many of these students, our internship not only provided them with their first job, but allowed them to help their families financially."
