“Greetings from El Paso! I’m on a volunteer vacation at Annunciation House March 19-29, with limited internet access. I’ll respond as soon as I can.”
Posted on March 18, 2019
Beginning in summer 2018, we have seen an increase in the flow of refugees arriving at the El Paso border. As ICE detention facilities filled, the number of refugees being released by ICE increased. As of the end of February 2019, 400-700+ refugees per day are being sent to Annunciation House.
We are urgently seeking additional short-term volunteers to help us provide hospitality to these refugees. For more information, please read this document (PDF).
Glenn Blumhorst (Guatemala 1988-91) continues to serve. He’s an example for all of us.
