Supplies Donated To Border

Church packs up donations for immigrant children housed at U.S.-Mexico border

A church in Austin is sending boxes of donations to help immigrant children being housed at the US border with Mexico.

Volunteers with the Saint James Episcopal Church packed up several cars with food, diapers and clothing.

It's all part of an effort to help relieve some of the strain created by an influx of Central American migrants crossing into the US through Mexico.

"These are our brothers and sisters who are suffering and many of whom are not being welcomed.  Our church has a long tradition of welcoming all people.  So this is a way we can share that welcome and God's love."

The church will be delivering everything it collected to McAllen, along the border.
