December Water Drop says
With the help of volunteers like yourself, Border Angels leaves dozens of gallon jugs of water in the desert along high-traffic migrant paths. Why? Following 1994, when the US government implemented its most inhumane border enforcement policies ever, more than 11,000 mothers and fathers, husbands and wives, sons and daughters have died. Their main cause of death? Dehydration. Our water helps reduce the 500+ deaths per year.

What to bring:
A signed copy of the volunteer waiver (
1 gallon jug of water to place in the desert.
Thick, clear, waterproof bag with 1 emergency blanket, 1 hand warmer, and 1 item of warm clothing (heavy jacket or sweater for example).

Plenty of water for yourself to drink, at least 2 liters/0.5 gallon.
