Harvest of Hope president honored

Philip Kellerman, president of the Harvest of Hope Foundation of Gainesville, was presented with the “Champion of Farmworkers Award” by the Mexican-American Council on Sept. 27 at the Florida Farmworkers Jobs and Education Conference in Tampa. 

Kellerman said he was recognized for his longtime commitment and assistance to migrant families in times of need.

Since its establishment in 1997 in Oneonta, the Harvest of Hope Foundation has distributed more than $1 million in assistance, Kellerman said. The aid went toward medical services, repairs to vehicles, housing, utilities, bus tickets, funeral expenses, food, clothes, footwear and scholarships to children of migrant farmworkers attending college, he said.
