We would like to share a link to a very timely article written by the founder of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, Greg Asbed. Please click here to read the following article, "What Happens if America's 2.5 Million Farmworkers Get Sick?" Let's all remember those who are providing essential services for us all!
We hope to begin scheduling church or other groups for Friday serving beginning in September 2020. Please check our calendar link and then contact us with a date you'd like to serve.
If you would like materials for your church or group bulletin board or table display, please contact us.
