The Florida Catholic's Long Sleeve Shirt Campaign

The Florida Catholic Newspaper's Annual Long-Sleeve Relief (LSR) Drive will begin on Ash Wednesday and end on Holy Thursday. The LSR collects clean, used or new men’s and women’s cotton long-sleeve shirts that are given to local farmworker associations and across Florida to be used by our brothers and sisters in the fields to protect them against sun, pesticide exposure and other elements as they gather the food we put on our table. The LSR drive also works to create awareness of the conditions farmworkers face and the vital role they play in the economy.

It easy to participate. Individuals, parishes, schools, and organizations are invited to conduct their own drives and donate shirts. Shirts can be collected and dropped off at various collection sites located within the Diocese of Palm Beach, including select offices of Catholic Charities. The locations are listed further below plus you'll find links to fliers and other informational materials.

As always you can make a monetary donation to support this special effort. NEW THIS YEAR: you can donate online at: youcaring.com/longsleeverelief or as always make a monetary check donation.

Make your check payable to the Florida Catholic and mail to:
Long-Sleeve Relief
P.O. Box 4993
Orlando, FL 32802-4993
