The Border Area is in Crisis, Donations Needed
Update 3/25/2019, from Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, Mission Presbytery Director, Ed Sackett
Yesterday was spent getting food to the respite center in McAllen to feed the 1000+ refugees that were dropped there. HEB grocers was heaven sent. We worked to move leftover Hurricane Harvey hygiene kits and supplies, along with diapers, from Taft to McAllen. Feeding the refugees was accomplished. There is still so much more needed.
The Humanitarian Respite Center in McAllen, Texas is running out of most supplies and is hopeful that you can donate. See list below and links to suggested donations.
Used clothes in good condition
Hygiene supplies (everything you use they need, except by the hundreds)
Diapers of all sizes, and wipes, lots of wipes
New underwear (all ages, all sizes)|
New socks (all ages, all sizes)
Please ship all donations directly to:
Catholic Charities Respite Center
209 W. Hackberry
McAllen, Texas 78501
