Staff of Bahamas Tourist Office, Florida, collect gifts for kids in Florida’s Farming Communities
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL - December 12, 2014 – In celebration of the Christmas season, members of the staff of The Bahamas Tourist Office Florida, during the first few weeks of December bought gifts to be presented to children in Florida’s farming communities of Immokalee and Lake Trafford.
The farming communities are mostly populated by immigrant and migrant families who work the fields which produce a large amount of the United States' fresh produce. Crops include cucumbers, bell peppers, citrus and a large percentage of the nation's tomatoes that are harvested during the winter months.
