Migrant Workers and their families have looked to St. Gregory's for help with food, clothing, and dental care. Currently the Migrant Ministry is working with the migrant families associated with the Caridad Health Center. Last summer, St. Gregory's was instrumental in funding the summer camp at the clinic. This greatly helped out parents who both work in the fields while the children are out of school. Our funds also helped provide back to school supplies and new clothes for over 500 children of migrant worker families. The children don't want to go to school if they don't have acceptable clothes to wear; we are able to make a difference.
