Farmworkers and Families of the Mass Shooting Victims Need Our Support
The Coastside community and the wider Bay Area are stepping up to support families of victims of the Jan. 23 shootings that killed seven farmworkers and wounded another in Half Moon Bay, as well as the farmworker community as a whole. At the same time, many are still trying to process the horrific events of that day.
Life Science Cares Bay Area is raising funds to support the Half Moon Bay farmworkers and families affected by the shootings. Funds raised will go directly to trusted local service organizations providing relief for individuals and families affected by the shootings — for lost wages, funeral expenses, and any other support they may need, including mental health services.
Please help support this Bay Area community in need. DONATE NOW
