As we enter the holiday season, we have every reason to be thankful for the generosity of so many people who have contributed, in many ways, to the success of our humanitarian service to the asylum seekers coming into our community. First, for the people who work directly with asylum seekers, both on the bridges and at the bus station, we thank you for the generosity of your time. You have set aside hours of each day, each week, each month, to dedicate yourselves to people who have so little. You have left your families and come to the bridge and to the bus station carrying gifts of food, clothing ,blankets, backpacks , snacks , toiletries and the list goes on. You have brought your presence much as anything , your spirit of caring which translates into love for these people that were strangers, but are now our brothers and sisters. For the volunteers at Good Neighbor Settlement House, you have brought forth your spirit of hospitality, of taking in people who have little and receiving them with warm food , blankets , beds and a place of rest. You have picked people up at the bus station at all hours and dropped them back off at the bus station or airport, sometimes in the middle of the night or 4 o’clock in the morning. Your spirit of welcome translates to the GNSH mission of serving the poorest among us. For the generous supporters from all over our country, you have supported the asylum seekers and provided the means to purchase all that we do. If you looked at the numbers of people we serve on a weekly basis, it would come out to approximately 280 dinners served on the bridge, another 400 meals served at Good Neighbor per week, purchases of snack bags, backpacks, snacks and drinks, clothing, belts , shoelaces, hats , gloves , scarves,blankets ,toiletries, baby clothes and diapers, medicines depending on need, tickets depending on need. We get some donations of clothing and have some teams helping with evening meals for the bridge. The rest of the donations come from our supporters throughout the country. We cannot continue to serve people without your support. We are #TeamBrownsville proud! So grateful that you are part of our team
