Hello local food enthusiasts,
Here’s a quick update on the Holley family: Daniel has been admitted to the Davis Hospital and is being cared for by their burn center for the next 6 weeks. Rob and Anna are home safe. This tragedy has brought together the community in many ways with donations of time, materials, and equipment. However, a lot of needs still need to be met, of which one of them is help on the farm.
To stay on top of the weekly harvest, a series of whole-day harvest work parties have been organized by Amber Sallaberry for the next 4 Thursdays beginning at 9 am at the Holley Family Farm.
If you would like to put in a day’s worth of time, please RSVP to email@example.com with the date of your choice and a second alternative:
- August 23rd
- August 30th
- September 6th
- September 13th
Let her know soon, because each work day is limited to 15 people max. She is also organizing carpooling options. Please bring gloves, sun protection, water, and a potluck dish to share for lunch.
If you can’t donate time, monetary donations as little as $5 are still accepted: http://tinyurl.com/hffdonationfund or call Wells Fargo (local 775-784-7800) and tell them you wish to donate to the Holley Family Farms Donation Fund account number 815083344. Wendy Baroli is handling all other donations: firstname.lastname@example.org
So far the community has raised over $3,500, that’s a great start! Thank you all so much for helping a local farmer’s family!
