Electric Vehicle owners, drivers and EV curious are invited to join us for an EV display as we gather in Emma Prusch Farm Park for a big Silicon Valley media event in San Jose for the first end of the Caravan. The Electric Auto Assn of Central Coast CA will join EAA San Jose to assemble our EV display with owners answering questions about their experiences of the many benefits of driving electric. We are partnering with new neighbor friends to collect food and other non-perishable donations for the Farmworker Caravan.  Bishop Cantu of The Catholic Diocese of San Jose and Catholic Charities of San Jose will lead the caravan with the donations from San Jose, CA to Hollister, stopping along the way to visit various farms to acknowledge farmworkers as essential workers who have continued working for us to continue to have food during the pandemic. Donations will be dropped off at Sacred Heart Church, Hollister, CA where Catholic Diocese and Catholic Charities of Monterey will receive the donations to distribute to the workers. 

An optional BBQ lunch at a private estate afterwards will celebrate the efforts.
