The office of El Paso state Senator Jose Rodriguez is looking to you to help look after the homeless youth in need.
“These are kids that are on the street. These are kids who find themselves in an emergency shelter, and they’re all lacking in the very basic amenities of life that we all take for granted,” Rodriguez shared.
The Streets to Safety donation drive is a collaborative project with other local organizations focusing on gathering things such as hygiene items or household products for the dozens of homeless kids staying at the El Paso Center for Children.
“They know that they have a support system outside of our program, and that’s the whole name of the game here. The transition doesn’t matter where you come from or what your situation is. Just that a lot of people want to see them succeed after this,” Outreach and Engagement Specialist with the El Paso Center for Children Erik Baray told KTSM.
The donation drive has been extended one more week, ending on October 12th. There are different locations around the city you can go to drop off these donations listed below:
