Edgar Robinson convened a group that you can join at St. John's to help minister to the families who are in need of assistance at the southern border of the United States. The process of providing direct aid is complicated by Federal Regulations. St. John's will partner with Catholic Charities which has the necessary support network in place to help support migrant families.  What refugee families on the border need most is a means to purchase clothes, toiletries, and food.  The best way to support this is through donations of gift cards. During Lent, you can drop gift cards from Walmart, Target, prepaid Visa, and prepaid Mastercard into the collection plate on Sunday. These cards will be sent to Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley for migrant refugee families on the southern border of the U.S.A.
