RCMA Hurricane Relief Fund: Help our farmworkers

Dan Industry News Release, Labor and Immigration

hurricaneSouth Florida’s farmworker families are suffering in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. The storm’s disruption of early-season farm work has left many jobless, homeless and running out of cash.

Please join the Florida Fruit & Vegetable Association in raising funds to help the Redlands Christian Migrant Association provide immediate basic living essentials and temporary housing needs for these families. Our goal is to raise $100,000 from the specialty crop community. We are optimistic we will have a partner soon to provide matching funds.

Thank you for your generosity in helping our workers recover from the storm’s devastation. Please donate today by going to the Florida Specialty Crop Foundation support page here.
