I’m Thankful for Farmworkers Virtual Event to raise funds to support nonprofit’s mission

Proteus, Inc. is celebrating its 41st Anniversary by hosting a fundraising event called, “I’m Thankful for Farmworkers: Virtual Celebration”. The event will be streamed LIVE Thursday, November 5 at 12:00 p.m., RSVP via our Facebook Event HERE.

For 41 years, Proteus has worked one-on-one with migrant and seasonal farmworkers. Proteus bridges the gap to support agricultural workers in accessing healthcare, education, employment/training, and housing services. Funding raised at this event helps Proteus continue to support farmworkers and their families.

In the past year, Proteus has been able to provide the following:
  • Assistance to 400+ families in achieving self-sufficiency
  • Training to 7,500+ farmworkers on health and safety
  • COVID-19 Testing to 2,000+ farmworkers

“At Proteus, we have always known farmworkers are essential. Yet, as we navigate through this pandemic, it is even more necessary to understand just how essential these individuals really are,” says Daniel Hoffman-Zinnel, Chief Executive Officer at Proteus, Inc.

“Farmworkers are some of the most hard-working and grateful individuals I have ever worked with. I am thankful for farmworkers and grateful for the Proteus team. Aside from providing safety-net services to these individuals and families each and every day, we have been innovative and proactive in how we expand services in light of COVID-19. I would urge everyone to attend our event to share your appreciation of farmworkers but to also learn about and be able to support the services Proteus provides to them in Iowa, Indiana, and Nebraska,” Hoffman-Zinnel says.
