Catholic Charities in San Antonio is collecting and donating supplies to a relief center for immigrants run by its sister agency, Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley.
The respite center, housed in Sacred Heart parish, is run by Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley, the charitable branch of the Diocese of Brownsville.
With the help of volunteers, the Humanitarian Respite Center has assisted more than 100,000 immigrants seeking refuge in the US since its opening, according to Catholic Charities.
The respite center has acted as a "first stop" for immigrants for years, said a July 10 article in the San Antonio Express-News.
