Lipman, which calls itself North America’s largest field tomato grower, contributed to the Immokalee-based Redlands Christian Migrant Association.

The money is designed to help RCMA build its Wimauma Leadership Academy middle school. The money is also set to help support the Immokalee Community School’s afterschool program by providing classroom and science supplies, according to a news release.

“Much of our labor force is comprised of migrant workers, so it’s important for us to support nonprofits like RCMA that help the children of our employees,” Jaime Weisinger, Lipman’s director of community and government relations, said in the release.

If Lipman really wants to help farmworker children, in addition to giving money, and buildings, they could work to improve wages and living conditions for the families.
