In response to the Coronavirus Pandemic, we have begun Canasta Solidaria (Solidarity Basket). Throughout the summer, we gave culturally appropriate groceries to over 500 families in Framingham & Milford. During early fall, we've taken a break to find a new location and more funding. Canasta restarted in Milford on October 24th and will restart in Framingham on November 21st. We estimate that this will cost about $10,000 every time we distribute. With your support, we can make that happen! Thank you to all who have already donated. There are two ways to donate:
Send a check to Metrowest Worker Center with "Canasta" in the memo line; PO Box 409, Framingham, MA 01704
If you or someone you know is in need, please call us at 508-848-0560 and leave your name & telephone number and we'll be sure to call you back. Or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. ¡Gracias! Thank you! Obrigado!
After a 2 month battle, a small siding crew has been paid the wages they were owed on the work they did at Camellia Gardens, part of the new Maynard Crossing (129 Parker St., Maynard). This is a significant victory for worker rights and shows that general contractors can be held responsible for ensuring that crews down the subcontracting chain are treated fairly.
