Saint Job to collect donations for Deming migrants

-A A +A

Saint Job of Pochaiv Orthodox Church will be collecting supplies for the Deming Fire Department to distribute to migrants who are sheltering at a local facility in the small border community before being transported to sponsoring homes or families.

Father Theophan Mackey said the church at 1319 Trinity Drive will be taking contributions Saturday morning in Los Alamos.

If the church gets a big response from the community, he will open the church to receive the donations, Mackey said.

The items needed include paper plates and cups, plastic cutlery, food, over-the-counter medicine for common colds and flu, cough drops, blankets, blankets, toothbrushes, toothpaste, combs, hair ties, shampoo, soap, pampers, baby wipes, canvas bags, coloring books, crayons and feminine hygiene products.

The church received a letter recently describing the operations at the Deming facility that is housing migrants. Since early May, the Deming Fire Department has managed a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week operation at the facility, including caring and providing for the migrants.

The fire crews are continuing to serve the Deming community’s fire and medical needs when they are not caring for the migrants.
