Funded Requests

All of the requests on this page are from specific individuals, families or organizations. One of the core values of HYH is that only the individuals themselves know what they want or need and that it is critical to take the time to ask them. When you fund an Individual Request, you are providing something that not only the individual, family or organization needs but you are also supporting another HYH core value which is that immigrants, migrants and refugees should feel valued, respected and appreciated. Basically, your support is saying, “we love you and the fact that you are here!”

Winter Boots

My name is Freddy. I am 24 years old. I arrived to Vermont 9 months ago and I have never seen snow before.

In my hometown the weather is not so extreme. My dream is to save money to build a house for my parents and to buy a piece of land so when I return I can marry and have children. I have been working at the same farm since my arrival. I sometimes work up to 78 hrs a week. I have been very homesick but I’m thankful for the opportunity to be able to have a job now more than ever. It is very hard in my community in Mexico with Coronavirus. I send most of my money to my parents to support my siblings. I need a pair of boots to survive the winter. I have seen that my peers wear this kind of boots because they have a good grip. I work at the milk stations with the robots. Thank you very much for your support. God bless you all!

Extreme Conditions Men's Winter Boots

My name is Caleb. I am 24 years old. I come from Veracruz, Mexico.

I arrived in Vermont 2 years ago, pursuing the dream to build a house for my wife and my 3 year old daughter. I work at a dairy farm 74 hrs a week, and I’m always willing to take extra shifts if they need me. I like to work at the milk stations. I have learned a lot. This is going to be my 3rd winter here and it is always tough. Good boots keep my feet warm and well insulated. This king of boots are the ones we mainly use at the farm. They also have good grip and they last longer than other boots. I don’t have a car. I don’t go anywhere. I live at the farm and it would be so helpful if I could get these boots so I can continue to work hard.

Work Boots

Hello and thank you very much Hearts you Hold for your generous support. I have been working here at the same farm for 9 years. Winters are very tough here as opposed to my home town in the Gulf of Mexico and I work 75 hrs a week in the milking stations with the robots.

I have different and long shifts and I need a good pair of boots. The ones that I have from 3 years ago are worn out, and they are slippery now. I would very much appreciate it if I could get a new pair so I can continue to work safely. Thank you very much and God bless you!

Tablet

Last month, Alemasi, Antonetie and their three daughters arrived from Democratic Republic of Congo, eager to begin their new lives here in Charlotte. Alemasi and Antonetie are ready to begin their ESL classes, but the local ESL provider is unable to provide a computer or laptop for them to take the class remotely, per COVID restrictions. Not only will this tablet provide them the opportunity to start their English classes right away, but it also will allow access to social services, their children’s school, and employment applications, all of which have to be done remotely due to COVID.

Pots & Pans Set

I arrived at the dairy farm in the Upper Valley 3 months ago. My husband has been working here for more than two years. I work at the milk station, helping milking the cows and feeding them too.

I work 68 hrs a week and on Thursdays which is my day off I cook and sell food for the community. I don’t have a car and I don’t go anywhere. It would be very helpful if I could get a set of cookware for this purpose. I send all my money to my family in Mexico to support them through Covid. I have 2 relatives that are very ill at this moment. Thank you for your support.

Work Boots

Hello, my name is Ernesto and I have been working on a farm in North Haverhill, Vermont for the last eight years. I am single and I decided to move to the United States to help my parents live a life of greater dignity and stability. It has been so hard to be so far away from my parents, especially because I haven’t been able to see them physically for the last eight years.

I work an average of 10-12 hour shifts six days a week and just a few years ago I decided to take the night shifts which go from 1am-1pm because the pay is slightly improved. At times, it has been tough for me to stay motivated, and passionate but the farm community has been so welcoming and supportive to me. One of my highlights every week is getting together with farm workers from different farms to play soccer on Fridays and Sundays. Even though both those days I work at 1am, soccer helps me so much in liberating any stress I might have. I am hoping that one of you would be so kind in donating a pair of work boots for my labor.

Sneakers

Hello, my name is Rose and I have only been in the Upper Valley for slightly over one year. The economical situation in the region of Mexico from where I am from was in very bad conditions so my sister convinced me to come to this region in search of better financial opportunity. Being only 20 years old, I decided to make this difficult decision to move to a new country, and a different culture because I know that with hard work I will hopefully be able to reach a sufficiently stable financial situation to go back to Mexico and pursue a college education.

I hope to at some point in my life get a degree in Business and Administration and my dream is to open some sort of sustainable business back in my hometown that will be a strong source of employment and create good financial stability. Currently I am working at a dairy farm and I work an average of 60 hour weeks, of which I mainly spend milking cows. Currently my sister handed me down her old pair of boots and would greatly appreciate a new pair of work boots that will hopefully last me for several years. I am also requesting a pair of comfortable Nike sneakers because I spend a lot of time helping my sister with her newborn son and helping her with her cooking business. Thank you so much for all that you do for our community!
