1. Our 2016 School Supply Drive Was a HUGE Success!
"We know how much farm workers sacrifice for their children, and we do the school supply drive, not as an act of charity, but as a means for thanking them for all of their work while making sure their children know how much we want them to succeed (and what superstars they are!)." - lauren Ornelas
This year we distributed 379 backpacks stuffed with much-needed school supplies to the children of farm workers. That's 47 more backpacks than last year!
As a hard-working, almost entirely volunteer organization operating on a tight budget, we're so, so proud of this incredibly successful school supply drive and thrilled to be able to set some pretty great kids up for success this school year.
We're also eternally grateful to you, our supporters and volunteers, who showed up for us and, more importantly, for the kids.
