ST. LUKE’S SUPPORTES

DWTX IMMIGRAITON MINISTRIES

FOOD AND PPE KIT DONATIONS

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) and Team Brownsville volunteers.

 

HERE ARE THREE WAYS TO HELP

#1

Pack Food and PPE Kits* on your own and bring them back to St. Luke’s by May 2nd. All items are to be placed in a one gallon zip lock bag, and should include one PPE Kit in a quart sized bag.

#2

Purchase supplies for others to pack kits at St. Luke’s. Bring the items to St. Luke’s by Thursday, April 22nd.
 

#3

Come to St. Luke’s on Sunday, April 25th at 12:30 pm (after the 11am service) to help pack Food and PPE Kits. We will put packs together with donations received from members of the congregation. You’re also welcome to join us if you have purchased your own food/PPE materials, but would enjoy our community as you pack them. Children and youth are welcome with adult supervision.
