Eastern Farm Workers Association
The Eastern Farm Workers Association is a ministry partner of First Church Brooklyn. They are a membership organization for farm workers and domestic workers that is completely volunteer run and totally donation supported.
Farm worker members labor on Long Island for very low pay and pick the food that sits on our table. Below are the many ways that our community supports their community. Please join us.
We gather new or gently used work pants and work boots to protect those laboring in the fields.
We visit and volunteer at the EFWA office located at 58 Beaver Dam Road, Bellport, NY 11713.
We help distribute turkeys and other items for Thanksgiving.
We participate in a Christmas Toy Drive for the children of EFWA and a Toiletry Drive for the women of EFWA every December. New, unwrapped toys and toiletries are accepted through Pageant Sunday every year.
We participate in Tamale Sunday. Orders accepted through end of January and delivered on Super Bowl Sunday.
We pray for farm workers.
