A few weeks ago, Paul McCarthy, owner of Captiva Cruises, stumbled upon The Immokalee Foundation’s homepage. After taking a look at the website, he called down to the home office and offered to take the TIF students out on a day-long expedition. A week later, 35 students and a handful of chaperones were on a cruise vessel from Fort Meyers to Picnic Island.
Among the various activities, the students participated in a scavenger hunt and were provided buckets and nets to collect their findings. Overall, the tour lasted about four hours but the contribution to the students’ summer will last a lot longer.
Thanks to Paul McCarthy and everyone at Captiva Cruises for their invaluable contribution to the lives of Immokalee students.
