Redlands Christian Migrant Association (RCMA)
RCMA provides quality child-care and early education for children of migrant farm workers and rural, low-income families throughout Florida. This organization is very important to the Wishnatzki family and Wish Farms has played an integral role in fundraising for RCMA’s newest addition – the Leadership Academy in Wimauma, FL, serving over 130 students in grades six through eight.
University of South Florida (USF)
USF – The Wishnatzki Family Migrant Scholarship was established into assist the funding of a graduate degree in education at the University of South Florida College of Education for a student from a migrant or seasonal farm worker family. The purpose of the fellowship is to help develop leaders from the migrant and seasonal farm worker community who are dedicated to improving educational opportunities for children whose families are engaged in farm work.
Florida Strawberry Festival
In 2011, Wish Farms became the title sponsor of the Florida Strawberry Festival Soundstage which hosts headline acts across the country music spectrum. As the title sponsor, our signage is displayed throughout the Strawberry Festival Amphitheatre and promotional videos are featured before each concert performance. The Strawberry Festival preserves the tradition of Plant City and its history, rich in farming. It creates a sense of pride among Wish Farms and the strawberry farming community to participate and inform people of the industry that, for generations, has made Plant City, FL the winter strawberry capital of the world.
At the end of each Florida strawberry season, Wish Farms opens its fields to the public, as well as local area food banks and other community organizations to pick fruit that would otherwise go to waste. Non-profit affiliated attendees pick for free and the general public is asked to make a minimum donation to a sponsored charity.
