Thanks to your compassionate donations, the group of Brownsville volunteers (#TeamBrownsville) who have been providing support to asylum seekers at our points of entry from Mexico since July 2018, are continuing to provide daily meals, clothing, personal care items and health support/maintenance as needed.

Brendon Tucker is a young man who helped establish a kitchen in August 2018 with the support of #TeamBrownsville , to make meals for our asylum seekers on the international bridge. He has now expanded his life's mission to establish kitchens for asylum seekers all across the US /Mexican ports of entry. Local volunteers with #Team Brownsville continue his work by taking meals as well as clothing, medications, cots, sleeping bags, blankets & pillows, supplies etc. for asylum seekers waiting at the Brownsville/Matamoros port of entry. Volunteers also provide for medical visits, temporary emergency shelter, even holiday celebrations. As the kitchen for asylum seekers continues to grow and expand, we are seeing the need to move towards a new, more efficient fundraising platform to support the continued efforts of providing warm meals, medical visits, medications, clean clothes, etc...

We introduce #TeamBrownsville Kitchen for Asylum Seekers where we are meeting the needs of the asylum seekers through a true embodiment of community. Local volunteers here as well as out of town volunteers and people who don’t live here, but care and want to contribute work together. There are so many asylum seekers passing through our community each week and we are grateful to have you sharing in their journey.

The asylum seekers stories of heartbreak and separation bring tears of anger and frustration to the volunteers here. We tirelessly provide services and meals every day of the week. The needs change every day depending on who passes our way.

We continue to learn every day about the people we serve, about their hopes and dreams and what we can do to assist them. We are in this for the long haul and hope that you will continue to support this effort.
