Pop Up Event - Crisis at the Border

The number of immigrants and immigrant families seeking asylum has reached record highs. Earlier this year, the Department of Homeland Security began busing and flying immigrants from areas on the border where they enter the United States to other towns deemed able to accommodate the overflowing populations.

HHI began working on this issue in 2014 with the onset of the unaccompanied minor crisis. We initially worked with the National Latino Evangelical Coalition as they were setting up housing facilities for unaccompanied minors in California, Florida, Illinois, New York, Arizona and Texas. We have continued our efforts by providing both Save the Children and Catholic Charities with hygiene kits. The almost 8,000 hygiene kits we’ve delivered since January have been given to those people who are released from the border facilities, often with nothing at all of their own. We are also currently preparing to deliver blankets, socks and underwear.

“Our mission has always been to help people in need, and right now there is a huge need within our own country’s borders,” Kim Carroll, HHI CEO, said. “While we have not been able to provide hygiene items to every detention facility, we are helping thousands of people who have nothing, and we will not stop working to bring health to these people who desperately need it right now.”

If you are interested in supporting our efforts please sign up to attend our event below. We will be assembling both hygiene and blanket kits. If you have any questions please contact [email protected]
