The Farmworkers Caravan is sponsored by an organization called CasaQ and occurs on a regular basis to support families in Hollister, Salinas, and Watsonville. Through their clear instructions and multiple donation drop off locations, they made it easy to contribute. We enjoyed shopping for the requested supplies at Costco, thinking of the families that would be using these everyday necessities. We then dropped off the supplies at one of the three locations in San Jose, where there were smiling volunteers to help us load the supplies into large trucks. I felt drawn to support this project because of how, as Bay Area residents, we are the recipients of the hard work of farmworkers who live near us.
