5k Run for Backpacks

Community

Lipman, North America’s largest open field tomato grower, recently distributed 700 backpacks to Immokalee children during the Collier County Sheriff Office’s “National Night Out” event. According to Collier County Public School’s website, 96 percent of Immokalee Middle School and nearly 93 percent of Immokalee High School students are “economically needy.”

School supplies were collected during Lipman’s Homerun Harvest Softball Tournament in April.
