Continuing Need: there has been a steady increase (up to 100 per day) in the ammount of refugees (primarily from Central America) coming through Annunciation House. They are in need of space/facilities (preferably with showers) from churches and organizations willing and able to help with refugees arriving (even a small ammount for a short period of time or specific days or times), needing a shower, clothing (particularly underwear), a cot to sleep on, meals, volunteers (Spanish-speaking preferably), and helping sending refugees to their families elsewhere in the U.S.

OPERATION: Loving Care is pleased to announce that Mr. Micah Levigne has volunteered to start a Chess program with the at-risk and mainstream youth that use the Rae Gilmore Recreation Center facilities. He has garnered the interest of other veterans who wish to volunteer their time to mentor these youth as well. The only thing that is missing from the equation is…chess boards and pieces. If there are any agencies that have these games on hand but haven’t any use for them, OPERATION: Loving Care would be glad to put them into play in a great way! Micah has plans to engage these children in tournaments local to this Rec Center and hopefully, expand this mentorship program across El Paso…one Rec Center at a time. Please contact Gail Wilson at (915) 667-0382 if you can help us help Micah or if you have any questions.
