Local business doing good together

At first sight, it may seem as though two local companies have little in common: investment firm Wasmer, Schroeder & Company which employs finance-savvy professionals across the nation, and Taste of Immokalee, which employs high school students rising out of the poverty of Immokalee.

But the focus of today’s corporate giving event looks far beyond those first impressions to see two benefit corporations working together, honoring their commitment to social responsibility and giving back to our local community.

As part of their mission to make a positive impact in the communities they serve, Wasmer, Schroeder & Company has chosen to give Taste of Immokalee holiday gift bundles as corporate gifts to their customers around the country.

All profits from the sale of Taste of Immokalee products are returned to aid the community of Immokalee. Learn more about this student entrepreneurship program at at https://www.tasteofimmokalee.com/about/.
