WEstern Farmworkers Association


Help Serve our Community

Western Farm Workers Association is a free and voluntary, private, unincorporated membership association run by and for the farm workers and other low-income workers in Washington County.  WFWA fights to end the problems of low income, unemployment, rising cost of food, clothing, utilities and other necessities that plague our low-paid farm worker members.  WFWA members organize a self-help, 11-point benefit program based on members helping members that includes food and clothing, preventive medical care, non-emergency dental care, legal assistance, job referral and more to meet day to day survival needs of members and their families, while fighting to change the economic policies that cause these problems.


WFWA is asking for help making backpacks for their families as we go back to school in September.  The average cost per backpack is about $125 per student.  We are accepting financial donations or any items on the following list.  All items can be brought to the office Aug 18th.  Thank you so much for your donations!
