ways to help Refugee Children
Increasing numbers of unaccompanied immigrant women and children from Central America have flooded across the Texas-Mexico border in recent months. These refugees are fleeing violence and poverty in the homeland and seek a life in the United States. They come with little more than the clothes on their backs and hopes for a future.
If you would like to help those children who are seeking refuge and safety, please refer to this list below from the Texas Catholic Conference as a guide to help you. Please do all that you can to assist these children.
Annual Fall Ball Fundraiser
Come and join us! Our annual fall ball to raise funds toward our $125,000 annual food costs for the InterFaith Hunger Project (IFHP) and Emergency Youth Shelter, will be held on September 27 at St. Thomas the Apostle Church at 4100 S. Coulter St. in Amarillo. The IFHP provides food to low-income disabled and low-income persons 55 and over. The Emergency Youth Shelter provides 24-hour emergency placement for youth, ages 5 to 17.
Enjoy an evening of cocktails, beef tenderloin dinner, auction, and dancing while supporting our valuable programs which support those in need in our community.
