Travis County spreads the word about supply drive for migrant kids

As Commissioners help get the word out about efforts to send clothing, food and other supplies to unaccompanied kids crossing the Texas-Mexico border, Austin Interfaith pushes the Commissioners for more. Jacob Cortez says "We'd like to propose that the relief effort be integrated with an attempt to bring larger amounts, in hundreds of thousands of these youth to Central Texas."

Judge Sam Biscoe says they could not discuss efforts to house the kids just yet. St. James Episcopal Church on Webberville Road and the Dell Jewish Community Center on Hart Lane are collecting supplies and will bring them down to Hidalgo County.

You can donate new or gently used items like children's shoes, socks, hooded sweatshirts, underwear, baby wipes, trash bags. Most items are for women, children and youths.
