BORDER ANGELS 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 sons and daughters, sisters and brothers, husbands and wives have died. Their main cause of death? Dehydration. Our water helps reduce the 500+ deaths
What to bring:
1 or 2 gallon plastic jugs of water to place in the desert.
Backpack with the items listed below.
Plenty of water for yourself to drink, at least 2 liters/0.5 gallon.
Sports drink, or electrolyte powder or jellies for energy.
Snack eg. energy bars, sandwich, trail mix etc.
If you need a ride, bring $5 for your driver to help cover gas.
IMPORTANT: Bring your I.D./Drivers Licence, DACA volunteers must bring their work authorization card as we pass through a border checkpoint.

What to wear:
Sturdy, closed toed, shoes or boots
Long pants to prevent scrapes/cuts from rocks, branches and cactuses.
Sunscreen, a hat and long sleeves if you burn easily.
Optional: Sunglasses, lip balm, bandana/scarf/towel to wipe away sweat, tissues.

Schedule:
We will meet at the Sherman Heights Community Center at 10:00am. From here we will carpool out to the desert. If you need a ride, bring $5 for your driver. Remember to eat breakfast before you meet up with us. Please try and arrive 15 minutes early to find parking. We will then head out to the Jacumba Hot Springs Shell gas station for bathroom use, food, coffee, and a view of the border wall. Finally, we drive to the chosen water drop location in the Jacumba Wilderness. Expect a round trip hike of 1 to 3 miles in hot weather. We return to the Community Center around 5 pm.
