Texas Border Business

EDINBURG, Texas – U.S. Border Patrol agents from Rio Grande Valley Sector stepped up, by collecting and distributing hundreds of pounds of food.

The McAllen Border Patrol station partnered with Hidalgo Early College High School National Honor Society students for a Fill-A-Boat food drive. Agents and students positively interacted with the public by collecting hundreds of pounds of food. The public’s generous donations filled the boat, and three trucks full of goods. The donations will be given out to the residents of the city of Hidalgo.

The Falfurrias Border Patrol Station hosted a turkey drive, and delivered the donated turkeys to the First Baptist Church of Falfurrias, Texas. The turkeys will be bundled with the additional sides to make a complete Thanksgiving meal. Caseworkers from Child Protective Services will pick up the meals and deliver them to families in the community. 

The Kingsville Border Patrol Station hosted a Thanksgiving food drive. Border Patrol agents and members of the community collected the donated canned goods and non-perishables. The donations were then given to the local food pantry at the First Baptist Church in Kingsville, Texas. The First Baptist Church distributed the more than 200 turkeys and food baskets to deserving families within the community.

“We’re passionate about giving back to our communities and have donated to the cause for years now. Our Border Patrol agents hope to show the public that not only do they protect and serve, but they are always ready to help those in need,” said Special Operations Supervisor Victor Cardenas.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our nation’s borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.
