FSSW Benefit for Oregon Farm Workers
Friends of Seasonal and Service Workers (FSSW) is an all-volunteer membership association that is dedicated to materially assisting seasonal, farm and service workers struggling for collective solutions to their poverty conditions through their own independent, community-backed organizing efforts.
FSSW volunteers donate time, skills and resources to help fight for improved living and working conditions in some of the lowest income communities in our area. By necessity, this aid includes non-perishable and fresh foods, clothing and support for preventative health care to provide for fundamental survival needs.
