Inspired by the amazing success of San Diego State University’s “Fight Hunger” food drive, a group of students, staff and faculty at SDSU-Imperial Valley Campus have joined forces with Ángeles sin Fronteras in Mexicali, Baja California, Mexico, to come to the aid and support of homeless deportees.
The group is organizing presentations for interested audiences on the plight of these doubly unfortunate—deported, with nowhere to go—as well as a clothes drive for Ángeles sin Fronteras, which provides them with temporary shelter until they’re able to wend their way home.
Clean, usable clothes, blankets and sleeping bags may be donated at the SDSU-Imperial Valley Campus parking lot on Sherman St. east of Heber Avenue in Calexico, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m.–10 p.m., Nov. 15–24.
The project is co-sponsored by the Faculty Lecture Series and the Commmittee on Diversity and Equity at San Diego State University-Imperial Valley Campus.
To arrange for a presentation on “Plight of the Deportees: Banned, with Nowhere to Go” (approximately 10 minutes in length) before your students or other audiences, please contact Rogelio Reyes at firstname.lastname@example.org or 760-768-5532.
