Volunteers distribute masks to farm workers

News

RIO GRANDE VALLEY, Texas – Tuesday, LUPE showed their support for farm workers in the Valley by distributing masks to farmers.

LUPE tells us this was a way to thank them as the farm workers sometimes do not have protection.

“In a society like this, we always forget the poorest of the poor. So, this is where we are. They are essential workers, but they don’t have the protection that they need. So, they can continue to do the work and be safe,” said Martha Sanchez of LUPE.
