Alitas Donation Drive

Casa Alitas needs your help

Casa Alitas is a local organization that provides housing and material support for mothers and their children traveling from countries like Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador. As they confirm their plans to travel further into the United States to meet up with family, they are provided food, clothing, and information on their rights as migrants. With an overwhelming number of families arriving in 2015, and even more expected in 2016, they need all the support we can provide.
