First, thank you all so much for your offers of assistance! Houchen Community Center, which is the central command for the refugees, reached out to the Diocese of El Paso this morning.
They need help in the following areas:
Volunteers! They are in need of people taking a couple of shifts to help in various ways. This can be in general picking up of the center to make it more hospitable for the refugees. They need help turning over beds when one group leaves and another arrives.
They are running low on sugar, mayonnaise (they are making a lot of sandwiches), eggs and milk.
They also need help with laundry. If you can take some loads of laundry and then return them, that would also be a great help.
If you need more info, please call 915-532-1231 or 915-704-0362
