East Fork fundraiser benefits Vecinos, gives a mug to health care workers

Announcement from East Fork Pottery:

We believe that everyone, regardless of documentation status, should have access to medical care, and hope you’ll join us in supporting our vecinos by gifting a Mug to a Healthcare Worker while supporting healthcare services for Farm Workers and our Latinx Community. Vecinos Farmworkers Health Program is a free clinic serving uninsured and underinsured patients working on farms. Their ability to carry out their mission has been heavily impacted by this global pandemic, as their clinic—housed on the Western Carolina University campus—is currently closed by mandate. This fundraiser will support their efforts to provide telehealth services to their community and to hire a caseworker to help their patients navigate the current healthcare crisis.

Your $25 will be donated directly to Vecinos, and the Mug you purchased will be gifted to healthcare workers at Mission Hospital—our neighbors!—as a thank you for their work.
