Crisis at the Border… Join our campaign to help migrant children in need
Thanks to your generous donations, we’ve just purchased and sent new shoes, underwear, blankets and sweatshirts to migrant children and their families in Texas.
Working through the Texas Interfaith Center for Public Policy, our goal is to provide basic clothing and other essentials for some of the thousands of impoverished migrant children crossing the U.S. border into Texas and Arizona. Many of the children, fleeing violence and poverty in Central America, are arriving unaccompanied, with only the clothes on their backs. Your donations are making a difference!
Be Someone’s Angel…! Sponsor Our Family of the Week
Our latest effort… Every week we’ll post a short profile of one of the families in our program waiting for a sponsor. This week it’s a family from Florida that is badly in need of help:
Toshia is a 41 year old elementary school teacher who lives with her husband and 14 year old daughter in Orlando. Both parents lost their jobs… which led to their losing their home. Despite financial hardships, their daughter is a hardworking student who makes the honor roll at school. If you’d like to sponsor Toshia and her family with monthly groceries, click here.
Growing by Leaps and Bounds
In the last few months, thanks to funding from Welch’s, we’ve been able to expand our hunger relief sponsorship program into 5 new communities. We’re now in Brookside, Alabama… Southaven, Mississippi… Whitney, Nevada… Baltimore, Maryland and Worcester, Massachusetts. That puts us in 17 states. Our goal is 50!
