CCC Mission

Summer Mission – Food for Migrant & Dairy Farm Workers

Food collection will be given to Spanish-speaking church who meets in our building. Many of the area farm workers are Hispanic/Latino so Mexican food items (eg. beans and corn flour or masa) are especially wanted.

School Supplies for Farm Workers Children

While many other organizations collect school supplies for children in the county, farm worker children are often overlooked. Paper, pencils, crayons, scissors, glue, etc. –  all the items found on “back-to-school” supply lists are wanted. We will collect through the end of August, and deliver school supplies at the beginning of September, right before school starts again.
