Your supermarket shelves are restocked because each and every day, thousands of farmworkers across New York are putting in long shifts to ensure there is no interruption to our food supply. However, some employers are failing to take the necessary measures to protect workers from COVID-19. On farm labor camps, where workers often live in over-crowded and unsanitary conditions, some have died from Covid-19, reports Spencer Tullis of the Finger Lakes Times. He is urgently pleading for home-made masks. He will pick up. Contact him at 315-729-9782 or search for his post on FB, or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org. They will be distributed by Rural Migrant Ministry (http://ruralmigrantministry.org/). Their closest satellite office is in Lyons.

The Catholic Family Center of Rochester, part of our Catholic Charities division, is also in need of homemade masks to protect their clients and workers. To donate to them please contact Marcus Ebenhoe (email@example.com) to organize pick-up or delivery of the masks.
