    Good morning,
    I work with a group of women at a Methodist senior living center in Dallas. They have crocheted around 30 sleeping mats/blankets from recyclable plastic bags. You have probably seen them before. They are sturdy and made with love.They are meant to go under some form of bedding to add cushion and keep the bedding dry and warm. In colder months, they make wonderful blankets.
    We donate to refugee centers and homeless shelters.
    The ladies have decided that they would like to take their next donation of mats to the border for immigrants.
    If your church or another Methodist Church in El Paso or Las Cruces could use them. I will drive them out est with some other supplies to drop them off.
    We are hoping that you may know of a shelter or center that could use them.

    Thank you –

    1. Thank you for reaching out to us. I apologize for the delayed reply. I am the new pastor at St. Paul’s and am just learning about these comments! Do you still have donations available?

  3. Clean the World Foundation is prepared to offer St. Paul’s United Methodist Church a large quantity of soap bars towards your efforts in assisting those immigrants affected by the border crisis. We have up to 360,000 bars available and palatalized with a count of 6000 bars per pallet that are pre-positioned in a local El Paso warehouse. The soap is a free donation that can be picked up (or we can ship if a large quantity of soap is requested).

    Clean the World is a global health organization committed to improving the quality of life for vulnerable populations around the world. We provide sustainable resources, programming, and education focused on water, sanitation, and hygiene for all those affected by poverty, homelessness, and humanitarian or natural crises. I encourage you to check our website for more details, but hope that we can provide you with a portion of this soap in your efforts to assist those arriving to the USA and into the ever-present immigration crisis at our borders.

    We have sent this offer to numerous organizations and the inventory is based on those who respond first. If you are interested in accepting our donation, please feel free to contact Director of Programs, Steffani Fields at 407-574-8353 ext. 1009 or via e-mail: sfields@cleantheworld.org.

    Hello,

    About a week or so ago, I contacted about 30 churches in the El Paso area to ask what, if anything, they were doing to help the children being held in detention camps under horrible conditions. I live in Canada, too far to be able to do anything, so was hoping someone closer was able to help. Out of the 30 churches I contacted, three churches and a diocese responded. There were no vigils held or planned and no protests held or planned. This information surprised me. I thought there would be people in the streets demanding the children and others who are living in deplorable conditions be given humane treatment. If all of the churches joined together to protest publicly, to stand together in the best interest of the children and others regardless of their immigration status, change would come. Politics and policy aside, the basics of humane treatment must be met.

    Will your congregation protest the treatment of children and others held in the detention centers? They need you. I hope you will actively encourage your congregation to participate in, or even to start, a protest to get the government to stop this terrifying torture.

    At this point, even singing hymns in Spanish outside the detention center would show solidarity and humanity to those kids. Be visible. Be responsible. Be brave and face down those who would accept the suffering of children as necessary. I hope you will. I hope every member of your congregation will.

    Sincerely,
    Marie Savage
    Sidney, BC, Canada

    Good Morning

    My name is Renee Orrantia and I am the Outreach and Education Coordinator for the Pasos Para Prevenir Cancer program. Pasos Para Prevenir is a community-based education and outreach program to prevent obesity-related cancers through increased physical activity and improved nutrition under the direction of Dr. Jenifer Salinas of Texas Tech University Health Science Center El Paso (TTUHSCEP) and funded by the Cancer Prevention and research Institute of Texas (CPRIT).

    This program was developed so that we can tailor the program to our audience with activities and additional information that would most benefit them.

    The general nutrition and physical activity education program was developed primarily as an obesity prevention program because obesity is the leading modifiable factor in preventing obesity-related cancers. In the first session the link between obesity and cancer is discussed and participants self-assess their own obesity risk to aid in the development of personal goals. The second session focusses on learning the basics of nutrition and offers tips on overcoming barriers to healthy eating. The third session shows participants how to make healthy substitutions to common dishes and offers a cooking demonstration. The final session reviews physical activity recommendations and shows participants ways to incorporate more physical activity into their lives.

    Our program also offers navigation resources on local restaurants with healthy menu options for adults and kids, a comprehensive list of physical activity resources, different deals and options for grocery shopping throughout the city, tips for grocery shopping, and a recipe book that can be discussed with the participant individually.

    If you have any questions about the program or are interested in hosting these classes at your organization, please feel free to contact me.

    1. Thank you for the information!
