L.A.M.P Summer 2020 Supporting Migrant Farmworkers

48181978_1589982013915659_r.jpegHello friends! Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising emergency COVID-19 funds to support migrant farmworkers and their families residing temporarily in Southern New Jersey from late spring to late summer. Any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.

As a little background, each summer I work with migrant farmworkers and sign up their children (ages 3 to 17) for summer school and summer camp during the blueberry season in South Jersey. During the blueberry season, migrant families travel from various parts of Latin America (Mexico, Guatemala, Puerto Rico, Haiti, etc.) and various parts of the United States to harvest blueberries.

These are unprecedented times for us all, and especially for the most underserved populations. Migrant farmworkers are considered essential workers, and it is with great expectation that they will continue to work during this COVID-19 pandemic. Their families will need much support. Through my nonprofit L.A.M.P, we would like to raise 2500.00 in emergency funds to support the migrant families specifically. Such funds would help with the distribution of emergency food bags, hygiene/toiletries bags, protective masks and gift cards to purchase hot meals and shop at the local grocery stores.

If you are interested in shipping items directly to me or volunteering please reach me at http://lamp4change.org
Thank You. Muchas Gracias. Merci.


In partnership & solidarity
