"Our involvement with the Guadalupe Center began 12 years ago when a member of the Guadalupe Center Board of Trustees first told us about the work they do. Then he followed-up with a trip to Immokalee. There we saw with our own eyes how their programs change the lives of thousands of Immokalee children. We made a commitment that day to become part of the Guadalupe family—a service commitment that has brought us immeasurable joy and countless precious memories over the following years. We recently made an unrestricted planned giving bequest to the Center, allowing us to continue our commitment after we are gone."
