Snow is falling across Colorado. Families are driving up into the mountains to put down their first tracks of the season or harvest Christmas trees. Along the way, one might see a farmworker preparing the fields for next season or a sheepherder and their trusty dog trekking through the forest. Despite working for more than 12 hours on many days during the peak harvest season, many individuals do not earn enough to provide for their families and prepare for Colorado’s harsh winters. Colorado’s agricultural workers gained the right to weekly overtime pay for the first time on November 1st, but they only begin receiving premium pay after working 60 hours in a week. These essential workers need your support!

Donated items will be delivered directly to workers by Project Protect Promotores—culturally and linguistically-skilled community health navigators who have connected with more than 15,000 agricultural workers over the past two years. They have been receiving increasingly urgent requests from workers for coats and other clothing to help cope with freezing conditions. As community members themselves, Project Protect Promotores understand the need also extends to children in agricultural worker families. To begin meeting this need, Project Protect is trying to collect a total of 1,000 adult-sized coats and 500 child-sized coats to distribute before the end of 2022.

Please donate to the Project Protect Food Systems Workers Coat Drive! New and gently used coats will be accepted at various locations across Colorado. Financial donations are very helpful as well.

Colorado’s agricultural workers thank you for the support!
