El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank has set up a Humanitarian Donation Campaign for migrant children currently housed at Fort Bliss in El Paso, TX.

Imagine you're a teenager going through unimaginable grueling conditions to cross the border illegally, and you get caught and separated from your parents or guardian and are now locked inside a facility with other strangers, waiting to see if they will ever get reunited with their family members.

This is the reality for thousands of migrant children who, no fault of their own, have been caught up in a desperate scenario of survival.

Politics aside, migrant children like American children require essential supplies to keep them mentally and physically active and healthy.

According to El Pasoans Fighting Hunger, anywhere from 2,000 to 3,000 asylum-seeking unaccompanied boys and girls ages 13 to 17 are currently housed at a facility on Fort Bliss.

To help these migrant children, El Pasoans Fighting Hunger is coordinating its Humanitarian Effort Donation Campaign to provide essential items for these migrant and surely frightened children.

Items Needed:

  • Spanish Language Books
  • Board Games
  • Card Games
  • Crayons and Coloring Books
  • Arts and Crafts Supplies
  • Sports Equipment (All kinds including football, soccer, and basketballs)
  • Musical Instruments

How To Donate:

  • Anyone wishing to donate can deliver items to the food bank located at 9541 Plaza Circle.
  • Donations are accepted Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Providing these basic items is vital for these migrant children, who are alone and undoubtedly scared and need mental and physical stimulation to stay occupied and emotionally fit.
