My team at $dayjob is taking turns at Brownsville helping people navigate the US immigration process. They're taking supplies to people trying to enter the country and either get asylum or refugee status because they have to wait in line for days or weeks before hitting the icebox. These supplies include clothing and nonperishable food.

If you have a few dollars, would you please consider buying some supplies for us to distribute?
