Farm Worker Families Support Fund

Oregon Farm Bureau (OFB) is fundraising for the families of farmworkers who were employed by OFB member, J. Ruiz Farm Labor Contracting in the Willamette Valley. On May 18, 2023, eleven farmworkers of J. Ruiz Farm Labor Contracting were involved in a horrific car crash, killing seven instantly and seriously injuring four. The van they were in was hit from behind by a semi-truck, pushing them into another parked semi. Although Workers’ Compensation will cover significant costs, there are other costs and support that will be needed for these devastated families. 100% of all money received by OFB through this effort will go directly to all eleven of the families affected by this tragedy. Thank you for your compassion and generosity.
