CIW offers thanks

By Staff | Mar 11, 2009

To the editor,

The Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) would like to extend their sincere gratitude to Mr. and Mrs. Roddy and Wendy West of Sanibel for their generous contribution towards the CIW’s new Community Center.

The CIW has long held the dream of having a space of our own to serve as the base of our human rights work and to expand our educational and leadership development activities within the farmworker community. Mr. and Mrs. West’s donation helps to make that dream a reality.

We would also like to thank the many members of the Sanibel community who

continue to support the CIW, both with much-needed financial support for our new Community Center as well as in the Campaign for Fair Food.

Mr. and Mrs. West, on behalf of many of us in Immokalee, your kind gift is greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Lucas Benitez
