This story comes from Lucia Gaspar, a promotora in the San Luis Valley region of Colorado. In early February, Lucia and other promotoras reached out to Valley Root Warehouse in Mosca, CO to ask what are the needs of their employees and to offer to help provide supplies to the agricultural workers. Lucia and the other promotoras were able to deliver bundles for thirty-two workers that contained 3 surgical masks, two N95 masks, and one washable mask. They also were able to give the warehouse four large bottles of hand sanitizer as well as four rolls of disinfectant wipes. The promotoras were also able to deliver food boxes for the workers whenever they had any available, which the employer was extremely grateful for.
