The term “day laborer” is one applied to individuals that search for work in construction and landscaping project-based work. It is common to see workers outside of large home supply and construction stores (such as Home Depot and Lowe's) waiting to see if they will be hired for the day in helping people with construction and landscaping projects. This community of workers is often overlooked by our society at large. Many day laborers are undocumented and/or homeless, and are often subject to discrimination.
On every first Saturday of the month, we visit two sites where day laborers congregate and we provide them with food, water, clothes and hygiene products. Our program’s goal is to provide moral and emotional support, and to document their stories. We also provide free immigration and employee rights consultations to those in need.
Donations will go towards the costs of:
Food, drinks and hygiene products for day laborers
Hats, gloves, safety glasses and other construction gear
Printed educational materials and “Know Your Rights” cards for day laborers
