As migrants travel from border communities to hub cities on their way to their sponsors across the U.S., they have shared a sincere need for food and personal protective equipment.

In an effort to support our neighbors and partner organizations, Immigration Ministries needs your help to provide shelf-stable, individually wrapped food and PPE kits. All kits will be distributed by Interfaith Welcome Coalition (IWC).

There are three ways to help out:

  1. Follow the instructions below to assemble kits and drop them off in the Outreach Center by Sunday, May 23rd.
  2. Purchase some of the supplies listed below for others to assemble kits, and drop them off in the Outreach Center by Sunday, May 23rd.
  3. Volunteer at our packing party to assemble the kits on Sunday, May 23rd in the parish hall after church (12pm).
