Items Needed for GO BAGS for Families Seeking Asylum

BakerRipley’s Immigration and Citizenship Program is providing legal orientations and assistance to families seeking Asylum in the United States, as well as addressing basic needs for families immediately upon their arrival to Houston. This is where they need our help!

During the next few months, we will host an ongoing donation drive to create basic needs “go bags” for recently arrived families. Many of these families have not eaten a full meal, showered, or changed clothes in several days before their arrival to Houston, and these “go bags” will serve as a tremendous support to get families connected to basic needs and food as they start to take the next steps of settling into Houston.
We are seeking donations for the following items:

  • Toiletries, New backpacks, New unisex sweatshirts and t-shirts, Diapers (any size), Baby wipes, Masks, Hand sanitizer, New undergarments (socks/underwear)

There are two ways you can support with donations, either by

Bread for the World   Mother’s Day Offering of Letters

More than 270 million people are facing extreme hunger—up from 135 million before the pandemic. The levels of U.S hunger are now higher than during the Great Depression, and the social and economic impact of the pandemic continues to devastate families and communities in the U.S. and around the world.
Because of your persistent advocacy, Congress passed the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. The legislation contains numerous provisions that will help people struggling with hunger and poverty. But there is more to do as we continue to address the ripple effects of COVID-19.
We encourage you to write your representatives to ask them to make the Child Tax Credit permanent and available to all children. We can also ask them to increase U.S. leadership and funding for global nutrition programs.
