THERE IS A HUMANITARIAN CRISIS AT THE BORDER. HELP US SUPPORT FAMILIES SEEKING REFUGE.

JOIN THE NAACP AND OTHERS IN AN EMERGENCY FUNDRAISER FOR HOLDING INSTITUTE, AN IMMIGRATION ASSISTANT POINT ON THE TEXAS BORDER, TO INSTALL SOLAR ENERGY AND RE-DIRECT SCARCE RESOURCES TO THE PEOPLE THAT NEED IT MOST!

 

SINCE 1880, THE HOLDING INSTITUTE, A UNITED METHODIST WOMEN’S NATIONAL MISSION INSTITUTION, HAS SERVED AS AN ESSENTIAL REFUGE AND A PORT FOR THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE SEEKING HELP IN THE BORDER TOWN OF LAREDO, TEXAS, WHERE TEMPERATURES REGULARLY SOAR ABOVE 100 DEGREES. WE ARE ON THE FRONT-LINES OF THE HUMANITARIAN CRISIS THAT IS SEPARATING FAMILIES AND WE NEED YOUR HELP.

AS RED CROSS-DESIGNATED IMMIGRATION POINT, WE PROVIDE SERVICES TO MIGRANT AND ASYLUM-SEEKING FAMILIES AND CHILDREN,

INCLUDING DACA AID, COUNSELING SERVICES, RESPITE, AND THE DIGNITY OF A SHELTER AND FOOD.

OUR BIGGEST EXPENSE IS UTILITIES: WITH TEMPERATURES REACHING 100+ DEGREES, 24/7 AIR CONDITIONING IS A BASIC NECESSITY AND ESSENTIAL TO OUR SURVIVAL – AND WE ARE PAYING FOR IT. YOUR CONTRIBUTION WILL ENABLE US TO INSTALL SOLAR ENERGY PANELS AND SAVE THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS EACH YEAR ON UTILITY BILLS – RESOURCES WE CAN REDIRECT TO THE PEOPLE THAT NEED IT MOST.
