Catholic Charities Dallas Team Helped Newly Reunited Families At Texas Border

A team of Catholic Charities Dallas staff and volunteers answered the call for help with the crisis at the border and travelled to McAllen, Texas to assist the team at Catholic Charities Rio Grande Valley last week. The team of nine staff members and four volunteers assisted with connecting reunified families with their loved ones currently residing in the US and assisting them with arranging transportation to the airport, bus stations, and hotels, and helped organize four donation warehouses. Working alongside volunteers from the McAllen community, Catholic Social Services of Columbus, Ohio, and Catholic Charities of Joliet, they worked long hours and did whatever was needed to assist Sister Norma, the Executive Director of Catholic Charities Rio Grande Valley. “We knew at some point we would receive a call as to how we can help.” stated Avril Knox, Director of Refugee Services for Catholic Charities Dallas. “We are very proud that CCD was provided the opportunity to serve the families at the border.”
