Coat Collection for Migrants and Refugees

December 22, 2022

The Paso del Norte Community Foundation and the Paso del Norte Health Foundation are partnering with local drop-off locations to collect new and gently used winter coats for migrants and refugees being supported by our local community. With freezing temperatures in our region and the many destinations, winter coats have identified by service providers as an important immediate need.

Additionally, the Paso del Norte Community Foundation established the Migrant and Refugee Support (MRS) Fund to support local nonprofit organizations responding to the humanitarian crisis on the border by providing food, shelter, healthcare and support services to thousands of migrants and refugees who find themselves on the front door seeking asylum, safety, and a better life.

While local, state and federal resources are being deployed, there is a continuing need for philanthropy to fill gaps and ensure that nonprofit entities have the resources they need.
