This past week at La Posada, we received a generous donation from the Mennonite Central Committee. Immigration Education Coordinator, Ana Hinojosa, arrived on Thursday morning with a special delivery. The donation consisted of 34 backpacks thoughtfully packaged. Each backpack valued at $65 contained personal hygiene items, undergarments, a hoodie, sweatpants, a bath towel, and a scrub. The backpacks had a keychain tag to identify size and gender.
La Posada continues to welcome migrants through their resettlement journey. Lately, La Posada has welcomed many short-term clients in response to the current influx. Short-term clients stay with us for 24-48 hours while awaiting travel arrangements to reconnect with sponsors. These clients benefit immensely from donations like this. In addition, over 100 retractable banner pens containing a Know Your Rights banner were donated. We are so pleased to have community collaborators like the Mennonite Central Committee. Thank you for your thoughtful donations and for supporting La Posada’s mission to welcome the stranger.
