Preparing for our fourth summer serving migrant workers in NJ

Haitian Migrant Worker Outreach (HMWO) has been collecting books all winter, including French-English and Spanish-English dictionaries.  Haitian-Creole dictionaries are not available second-hand, so must be purchased new, which is more expensive.  We are well along in planning the summer 2013 edition of the FREE Haitian Migrant Worker Journal, which will be published in both English and Haitian Creole.  A Spanish language edition may also be available.  *If you know anyone who is moving or down-sizing, please let them know that HMWO continues to accept donated used clothing in good condition, sheets and towels, and folding chairs, including lawn chairs.  The folding chairs are really appreciated out at the migrant camps. At the end of a long day working in the sun, it's nice to pull a chair into the shade and sit down!  We're also looking for art supplies, including paper, paints, brushes, pastels, and craft items.  If your group or club would like to get involved, we have project ideas to share with you!  Please contact me at 609-969-2480, or email me at Dory@HaitianMigrantWorkerOutreach.Org
