There are approximately 100-200 migrant workers that arrived in Alamosa, Colorado recently to pick vegetables and fruit in the fields. They had no masks nor gloves, plus they are housing 16+ individuals in one room with one bathroom.
Several women in the Denver Latina community got together and we made masks for these workers. The problem is they need money for food and living expenses, etc. They are paid minimally for their hard work.
Remember when you eat fruit and vegetables for breakfast, lunch and dinner — that these workers are risking their lives to possibly get the COVID virus.
Any donation amount will help. THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
