SLB Mid-Atlantic Alumni Network & SLG DC Metro Alumnae Association Seek Support & Donations for Border Relief Efforts in Texas

There have been multiple news reports of unaccompanied minors from Central America fleeing their home countries and seeking refuge in the U.S.. Many of these minors have been seized by U.S.. immigration authorities and placed in various detention centers along the southern Texas border. The influx of minors has placed a strain on the available resources for an adequate living as they transition. Some of these resources include proper clothing, footwear, women/infant care products, and other personal items.
 
Recently, the SLB Mid-Atlantic Alumni Network (MAAN) has partnered up with the DC Metro Alumnae Association of Sigma Lambda Gamma to assist with the Southern border’s relief efforts. They are currently working with Texas-local organizations and other national non-profits by providing them with care packages and/or monetary donations to obtain necessary resources. 

As of now, the two Alumni organizations have been able to raise nearly $2,000 in monetary donations through social media advertising and local community outreach, but they are still seeking more support from our influential Brotherhood.

Sigma Lambda Beta International Fraternity, Inc. (SLB) in conjunction with Sigma Lambda Gamma National Sorority, Inc. (SLG) will be collecting donations to assist with relief efforts for the unaccompanied minors and families who are being detained along the Southern border of Texas. All collected items will be donated to The Food Bank of the Rio Grande Valley (RGV). The two organizations will be collecting all donations through the entire month of August and September.
 
The Refugee Relief Center of The Food Bank of the RGV assists with transporting families to a location where they have access to showers, clothes, meals, medical care, and items for young children during their transition period. This location also serves as an overnight shelter for those who were unable to be transported to their given destination by the United States Border Patrol. The Relief center hosts up to as many as 200 refugees on a daily basis. Due to the increase of refugees fleeing to the border, today’s needs have increased.

We our extending this opportunity to all entities throughout the nation to get involve with this relief effort. If you are interested in participating or would like to learn more information about the efforts, please contact the following SLB Alumni Network representative:
