Long Sleeve Drive with UNC’s Mi Pueblo
March 25 - March 31
Mi Pueblo, a UNC-CH student-run organization, is sponsoring a donation drive requesting long sleeve shirts for North Carolina farmworkers. Agricultural jobs, especially in North Carolina, expose workers to the harshest effects of pesticide and sun exposure. Many agricultural workers in our state are working under H-2A visas and come from Mexico and other Latin American countries, as well as Asian countries. They typically arrive in the United States with the clothes on their back and very little — if any — other clothing, so these donations help our immigrant community immensely.
