The American Friends Service Committee is in the process of collecting Blankets for distribution at the Mexico-U.S. border to migrant individuals and families who are/have been deported. Once dropped at the border by private contractors, which mostly happens at midnight so these contractors collect two-days pay, people are forced to walk hundreds of miles in the desert where they suffer from exposure to cold and lack of medical treatment.

We ask that people from all over the country send blankets, first aid kits, and/or school supplies to our San Francisco office so that we can supply these much needed items to individuals and families facing these terrible conditions.
