A spontaneous encounter
Main Participantanonymous worker
Colorado County & RegionNorthern Fort Collins, Larimer county
Promotora Tomi and I were driving the county roads to visit a dairy in Northern Fort Collins. We were carrying with us hats with neck protectors and bottles of water.
It was a hot summer day and at distance we could see a cuadrilla working in a corn field.
As we got closer to the field we parked in a safe place. The workers were too far away to reach but there was one working at a water pump. We walked towards him and introduced ourselves sharing what type help we offered at Project Protect Promotores. Tomi chatted with him and found out that he knew her husband!
The worker told us that he worked for a local ranch but they moved around to different fields.
We gave him one of the hats and he said , “ No one has ever given me something free.” His reaction was so precious and his gratitude so genuine.
We left feeling good knowing that we had made someone happy that day!
