Fordham University Students Benefit Immokalee

Fordham University students partnered with Rural Neighborhoods to help an Immokalee resident with some much-needed yard work. The nine students spent four hours trimming bushes and spreading dirt to level her yard and make it safer for walking. They also helped remove old fence posts and install supports for a new fence to help keep the owner’s pets secure.
