Learn About Somos America

June 13 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Sharon Kopina, Humanitarian Aid Project Mgr, Somos America (501c3) will present updates of the ever-changing landscape of immigration journeys in Arizona and across the nation as asylum-seekers search for safety and acceptance. Somos America provides bags of travel-size food items at the Phoenix bus depot to asylum seekers boarding buses to continue their 2-4 day journeys to be with family members in various cities as they await immigration processing. Connections are being made with volunteers in hub cities throughout the US so those on longer trips can be resupplied en route.

We welcome your donations when you attend the program on June 13! Experience has shown that the following TRAVEL SIZE items work best: 1) small packs of sandwich crackers filled with cheese or peanut butter; 2) SOFT granola bars; 3) boxed tuna or chicken salad with crackers; 4) small packs of peanuts. 5) Individual cups of applesauce
or fruit cups. THEY ALSO NEED SIZE 2 and 3 diapers

No time to shop? Donations in the form of cash or check would also be gratefully accepted.

Thank you for caring, and for your generosity
