We got to know our new friends Lillian Salerno and Kendall Scudder over a bottle (or 3) of champagne and a revealing game of "Never have I ever."

SH*T TO DO:
Customs and Border Patrol is dropping off hundreds of asylum-seekers at the bus station in San Antonio every day. The Interfaith Welcome Coalition has been doing their best to greet these refugees (who arrive with nothing but the clothes on their backs) with backpacks full of necessities like wet wipes and blankets. But the number of refugees and asylum-seekers has increased so rapidly, the IWC is having trouble keeping up. We can help!
Purchase items for these folks directly from the IWC’s Amazon wish list here: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2RLIZWONY8XUK?fbclid=IwAR2Okcv1gLbGTrr45ZEc0IvJpRatHFCPdi_HkAZ5KebOMFhehIHFoeEqtls
Plus, right now the city of San Antonio is matching every $2 donation to IWC with an additional dollar from the city in order to provide overnight shelter for migrant families. Donate here: https://interfaithwelcomecoalition.org/donate/
