The Salvation Army in Waco is teaming up with Border Patrol to assist with helping immigrant families who are in need of humanitarian help.

The team will consist of three trained individuals, who will pack up and head to McAllen, Texas. Once there, the team will help aid in efforts of feeding approximately 500 individuals, two meals a day.

The Salvation Army said, the Border Patrol contacted them along with other agencies asking for the help.

The team will head out this Wednesday and stay in the McAllen area for two weeks.

"Need has no face, has no nationality, it has no age. When people are in need, they just need our help. The Border Patrol and Department of Human Services have asked for our help. The Salvation Army will provide resources to these families...many of them come here with children and nothing to eat." Said Major Dan Ford, Regional Director for the McLennan County Salvation Army.

If anyone would like to donate they are asked to contact the Salvation Army at 254-751-1812
