VITTORIA—A call for Spanish bibles for use by the migrant workers affected by the Scotlynn Group COVID-19 outbreak in Vittoria saw resounding success with about 170 bibles collected.

To help collection organizer Nancy Palma, The Haldimand Press put out a call for Spanish bibles in its June 11 edition.

Palma saw bibles donated in bulk from a few locations. Relatively nearby, Pastor Vicente from a Spanish church in Hamilton donated 20 bibles.

Angelica Cervantes is from the United States but learned of the workers’ need as she is friends with Palma, who shared The Haldimand Press’ article on the outbreak on Facebook. Cervantes donated 50 bibles in response by raising funds to purchase them new, along with purchasing a few herself and paying for the shipping.
