School is back in session for many borderland students which means when the kiddos head back home after school they will have a huge appetite!

Well, that is the case for the children staying at the Child Crisis Center of El Paso but the center is facing a challenge when it comes to being able to provide their families with food.

“Our community pantry is running a bit empty,” read a post shared on the organization's social media pages.

According to the post, the organization’s cooks use the food from their community pantry to prepare the children’s meals and the food in the patry is also used to provide families in need with a box of basic food needs.

The organization is hoping the community can help them fill up their pantry by donating non-perishable items.

Items can be donated at The Child Crisis Center of El Paso’s center which is located at 2100 N. Stevens during regular office hours: M-F 8 a.m - 5 p.m.

Monetary donations can also be made to the organizations PayPal account at childcrisiscenterofelpaso.org.
