Volunteer Work for Unaccompanied Minors at the Border

Organized by: Micki Buschart

THE STORY:

Our country is facing a humanitarian emergency at our border with Mexico. An unprecedented influx of unaccompanied children are migrating to the United States in order to flee extreme violence and instability in Central America. We feel a strong ethical obligation to assist and protect these vulnerable children. We will be at the US/Mexican border on August 9th to August 17th.

We have estimated the costs associated with the trip:

Rental Van: $900 for a minivan to carry all donated items to the shelter; unlimited miles; 8 days.

Gasoline: $650 to $700 for roundtrip to El Paso Metro area and Kansas City. According to several legal organizations, we might be sent to Artesia, New Mexico for a few days (approximately three hours).

Lodging: $150/night for 8 days = $1200 - We will stay at the shelter if available. However, refugees are occupying all available beds at this time.

Total Estimate Costs: $2750 to $3000

ALL REMAINING DONATIONS will be given to the shelter.
