From Gainesville to Orlando, the Lake Apopka Farmworker Memorial Quilts have brought the stories of the Lake Apopka farmworkers to more than a dozen venues this year. Now, the Farmworker Association of Florida needs your help so that we can continue spreading the quilts’ message throughout Florida. During their many travels, the quilt stands have suffered some wear and tear, and we hope to replace them a with stronger, sturdier stand. Our goal is to raise $400 to buy new, more durable stands by January 1, 2015.
You can help the quilts continue sharing their message and the stories of the farmworkers to others around the state. Please make a tax-deductible contribution through the PayPal link below, and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to earmark your donation for the quilt stands. Or, send a check payable to the Farmworker Association of Florida to 1264 Apopka Blvd., Apopka, FL 32703 with “quilt stands” in the memo line. With your generosity, we look forward to displaying the quilts at book signings, universities, and community events for many years to come!
Thank you for your support!
