Cesar E. Chavez was one of the most significant and influential civil rights leaders of our time. Chavez devoted himself to social justice and improving the lives of the impoverished and op- pressed. His name, like the name of Martin Luther King, Jr, speaks of character and commitment. This project is in honor of the life and work of Cesar E. Chavez.

The Cesar E. Chavez- "Fluff and Fold" project is a multifaceted service learning experience that will provide your grades 3-5 students with a vehicle that embodies Cesar Chavez' values, addresses homelessness issues, and facilitates gaining life skills all while tying directly into the California State Curriculum Standards. Whether used to celebrate Cesar Chavez Day with your class or simply as a part of regular class studies, this project will help enhance and support the Academic Curriculum.
