Farmworker Donations Needed

Farmworkers need more help than ever in the 13th year that Beth Meyer Synagogue has partnered with the Episcopalian Farmworker Ministry (EFM) in Newton Grove, NC. EFM serves farmworkers in 47 labor camps and provides spiritual guidance, clothing, bedding, food and medicine. The farmworkers live in remote and isolated labor camps in Johnston, Harnett, and Sampson counties. Many have only the barest of necessities.

Most Needed Items:

  • Men's Used or New Pants: dress pants, jeans or khakis sizes 30-34 (but any size is acceptable)
  • Wide Brim Hats
  • Long Sleeve Shirts: any kind including dress shirts, which are light weight and provide protection from the sun and pesticides
  • Medications: Tylenol, Bengay, Dramamine, insect repellant, Gaviscon and itch ointments
  • Bath Towels
  • Shampoo - no trial sizes
