There are at least one thousand field workers on the farms in Yuma, migrants from Mexico, who need both physical and emotional warmth. These workers are people on the margins, who are often overlooked during the holidays. The deacons in the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego have resoundingly agreed to support these workers by gifting them with hats, gloves, and socks, a small thank you for all the hard work they provide in growing the food for our tables. But the deacons can’t do this alone; we need your help!
“We ask for your support today as we reach out to our entire church community for funds to help us provide warmth for the 1000 workers. Yes, this seems like a lot, yet we remember the miracle of the loaves and fishes. Everything is possible when we put our trust in Jesus. No one will be overlooked or forgotten. Please be generous,” said Archdeacon Cindy Campos
This hardship is not unique to Yuma, AZ, and the newly created Diaconal Outreach Fund will be used to support projects like the need above. The bishop asks you to generously support their efforts.
Checks may be made out to EDSD and mailed to 2083 Sunset Cliffs Blvd, San Diego CA 92107. On the memo line, indicate Diaconal Outreach Fund. Cash is always welcome.
Thank you for supporting this important work!
