Donations now being accepted for the Migrant Program (for farm workers)

Did you know each year, migrant farm workers travel to Mid-Michigan and many of them do so with their families?

Because they travel often and receive limited pay, they often lack basic items such as blankets, diapers and more.

For many years, members of the Catholic community have donated food, clothing and other items to these workers. The Diocese of Saginaw also supports the migrant families by providing priests for the celebration of weekly Mass and the sacraments.
