Support Asylum Seeking Families
The new Asylum Seeker’s Shelter is on 6th Ave in downtown, in the old county courthouse. Rapid Response Network has already moved into the new shelter. That will be the facility until December 31, 2019. They are in need of clothing and a few other items. We are going to be collecting donations in bins at both campuses.
To donate money visit: GoFundMe.com/MigrantReliefSD.

Donate Needed Items:
Shop our Amazon wish list to contribute specific items that the shelter needs.
To Volunteer: Contact our Network Coordinator, Sandra Alvarado, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
DONATION ITEMS NEEDED:
Shirts and sweaters (sizes small and medium)
Pants (sizes 30 and below or boys XL - many of our guests are petite and can fit into boy's sizes
Backpacks (used ok)
Protein bars for travel bags (not granola bars)
More international calling cards. These can be bought at Rite Aid, CVS, or Walgreens. We are going through these faster than anticipated, so we really appreciate the donations!

There will be donation bins by the Social Justice table at both Hillcrest and South Bay. The Fire Marshall is strict about how much we can keep on-site at once. If possible, please sort and label donations by gender in advance.
