Mexico Border Crisis by Danny Sims, Executive Director

By Floyd Miller



Global Samaritan Resources is taking a second team of volunteers to McAllen, Texas to assist with the continuing humanitarian crisis on the Texas border.Our goal remains to help meet the most basic and short-term needs of children crossing the Mexico border and entering the US illegally.Seven volunteers, all from Abilene or the DFW Metroplex, plan to leave for McAllen Tuesday September 2 for a three day trip. This team will serve at a respite center where Catholic Charities is providing children food, water, clothing and a safe place to rest.Citizens of Abilene and The Big Country have generously donated clothing for women and children. We delivered several pallet loads on our first trip to McAllen in July. Three more pallets of clothing for women and children left our warehouse for McAllen yesterday Cash donations to help may be given at our website We are no longer accepting donations of clothing or other goods.
