Long Lines for Food Baskets

Every Saturday, 285 families form a line outside the warehouse at YLM to receive a package of groceries.  The majority of people seeking help are elderly men and women who live throughout El Paso County.  Families from Mexico that have border visas cross the nearby bridge seeking help at YLM.  Recently churches, grocers, and the West Texas Food Bank have generously donated large varieties of food so that people won’t go hungry.

Volunteers spend time in the warehouse every week and assist with distributions on Saturday mornings.  If your family, church, or organization would like to take part, contact us for information.
