Growing Seeds Workers Union - GoFundMe for Workers on Furlough!


Recently, workers at Growing Seeds Irvington were furloughed without pay. As the pandemic continues, more and more childcare workers will find themselves in situations like this. Please donate to help support the childcare workers of Local 5 directly as they face systemic and possibly rolling furloughs without pay due to the COVID-19 pandemic!
