    We are also in need of:

    1. Drivers willing to pick up donations
    2. Drivers and volunteers to drop off donations at border (passport-holders preferred)
    3. Host organizations or individuals that are willing to collect and store supplies at their spaces/homes until border delivery date.
    4. Monetary donations to purchase supplies and travel costs.
    5. PLEASE SHARE WITH EVERYONE (I.e. post on group pages, tell your neighbors, colleagues, etc.)
