Dear NC FIELD Supporters,
Thank you for supporting NC FIELD and farmworkers everywhere. Below you will find updates on our community and ways you can support farmworker families affected by Hurricane Matthew.
Hurricane Matthew caused damage and flooding throughout Kinston and the surrounding counties. It displaced many farmworker families and individuals, placing them in shelters, loosing their homes and valuables. Many families were without electricity and shelter.
Unfortunately the damage does not end there. Farmworker families depend on the work they perform in the fields and packing houses. The damage that Hurricane Matthew caused has left many farmworker families without a home, food, electricity and work. NC FIELD is partnering with community organizations to gather donations to assist farmworker families affected by Hurricane Matthew.
How to Help Flood Victims:
There are many ways that the community can come together to assist victims of the Hurricane Matthew.
There are many resources available for farmworkers regardless of their immigration status. Learn more about what resources are “unrestricted” / “restricted” and available to victims regardless of immigration status here.
