Even if you can’t make it out in a caravan to the internment camps and related sites, you can show your support for the kids who have been interned by donating a stuffed animal, Spanish-language children’s books with loving notes inside, or a cozy blanket you’ve knitted.
We don’t know if we’ll be able to get these comforting items inside to the children, but we are going to try!!
Please also take a photo of your offerings and share on social media with the hashtag #toys4ninos to spread awareness in solidarity with the kids who have been interned.
Drop off your contributions at Jennywinks’ House at 1907 McGee Ave., near Hearst, in the large basket inside the front porch.

Thank you for your solidarity with the kids who have been interned! Muchas gracias por su solidaridad con los niños!
We are not an official organization, just women and womens’ neighbors organizing to bring comfort to these kids and get them out of the internment camps, stop the internments, and also get the kids who have been separated back with their families as soon as possible. You can start a caravan in your city.
This is an omni-partisan call to action. We invite everyone to stand in solidarity with the kids.
