EVENT DATE Nov 20, 2014

THE STORY:

Migrant farm workers work long arduous hours for little pay. It's time we open our arms to the vulnerable and needy population that picks the food that we eat each and every day. The agriculture industry has no minimum wage, since most pay is done based on pieces picked, so these workers labor day in and day out, through blazing hot sun and chilling cold so that they can make enough money for their families here and back in their home countries.

We are class from the Sociology department at the University of Utah who are doing community engaged learning by planning two events. The first is a Farm Worker's Appreciation day where we will invite around 200 migrant workers and provide a meal, games for children, and food to take home, as well as clothing, gift cards, and informational resources. This will take place on November 20th

The second will be to provide winter clothing, (sweatshirts, knit hats, etc), and supplies to workers in fields in the Syracuse area. We've gathered sweatshirts, hats, and gloves left over from the Big Cottonwood Marathon that we plan on donating to the workers. We will be delivering the  clothing on November 7th.
