Celebrating Everyday Heroes.

A core value at St. Supéry is sharing joy - in our homes, in our daily lives, and at those special occasions with those we hold dear. This Fall, we are sharing the stories of those bringing joy to their own communities. So many are doing good things and making their world a better place without seeking recognition.

 

Let's celebrate these everyday heroes.

On August 20, 2020, the same week when the catastrophic wildfires hit the North Bay, Kimberly Gomez took action. With an Instagram call to action, she aligned herself with others in the surrounding Bay Area community and formed the mutual aid collective Direct Action for Farmworkers.

The organization’s mission is to help the most vulnerable communities, which Kimberly knows all too well from her firsthand immigrant experience. This group wasn’t asked to show up; they just did. A group of like-minded folkx came together to leverage their voices and presence to help amplify the voices of others.

Direct Action for Farmworkers has raised almost $49k and collected multiple carloads of essential and basic needed items. They have redistributed supplies to farmworkers in Cloverdale, Sonoma, Healdsburg, Lake County, Livingston, and Stockton. One of their first distribution was in Cloverdale, assisting over 300 farm working families with bill assistance, groceries, hot meals, PPE, including diapers and baby wipes. Volunteers like Kimberly run the collective, and their work is made possible through donations from the community and community partners.

“Farmworkers are often without labor protections, fair pay, and organizations to support them when they need it most. They play an important role in our food supply, and we need to stand in solidarity to protect and support their well-being.”

“I am so thankful to have community partners and other organizations, like St. Supéry, to help us share our story and increase the amount of people we can give back to.”


Harvey nominated an Everyday Hero, Kimberly Gomez, for #EverydayHero #InJoy @Stsupery to celebrate their volunteer contributions to and #givingback.
