WE ARE NOW SHIPPING AID TO OUR SOUTHERN US BORDER!

We’ve seen refugees around the world fleeing violence and instability in the hopes of finding peace and opportunity. Now we have a humanitarian crisis on our own border. This is our crisis and our turn to step up.

Join us today in helping to support shelters providing warm meals, hygiene supplies, and fresh clothing to thousands of families seeking refuge from gang violence and political upheaval. For every $10 you donate, we deliver an average of $150 worth of aid supplies!

DONATE AID SUPPLIES FOR FAMILIES SEEKING ASYLUM

When asylum seekers arrive, they are held at detention centers and put through preliminary processing before being dropped off at various different locations along the border. There, generous nonprofit organizations and churches provide services including warm meals, showers, and a place to stay for a short time. This gives families time to figure out how to get where they are going, which is often to stay with relatives already living in the US. We have teamed up with Church World Service to vet and select six partner shelters to which we provide aid at the border. Our humanitarian aid warehouse in Utah collects, sorts, packs, and ships supplies to the partner shelters.

Did you know that Central Americans escaping the atrocities of their home countries have the legal right to seek asylum in the US? This information is shared through our continued partnership with @tsosrefugees.

Will you donate humanitarian aid supplies to help meet the most urgent needs of families seeking asylum?

We are in contact with shelters along the border where aid supplies will be received. They tell us exactly what the asylum seekers there need. Each shipment is different because they are customized to the needs at that time. We do this because when aid supplies are sent but not needed, they become more of a hindrance than a help. So we ONLY send what is needed.

Here are two easy ways to donate aid supplies:

AMAZON WISHLIST

This is by far the easiest way to donate exactly what asylum seekers need. With the click of a mouse, diapers, socks, backpacks, and other critical items come to our humanitarian aid warehouse in Utah to be shipped to partner shelters along our southern border.
