Migrant Farm Workers are a vital part of our Niagara economy, not only as essential contributors to the fruit and wine industry but in local spending while they are here. However, opportunities for them to take part in community and access services are few; In order to provide a sense of community and support for Migrant Farm Workers, NMWIG is hosting our annual Health Fair on June 25th. This event is a means of providing workers with both education/information and a sense of belonging in the community.
We are asking local businesses in Niagara to be a part of this exciting event by donating a few needed items to help make this event a success. Items will be distributed to Migrant Farm Workers as raffle and prizes during the Health Fair and will be much appreciated by the workers.
Let’s showcase the Niagara spirit of community, together!
If you would like to make a donation or have any questions, please contact Anneka at firstname.lastname@example.org
