Strategic Insight Group is a consulting firm in Los Angeles that has already collected nearly 500 pounds of much-needed supplies (toiletries, shoelaces and diapers) that went to 500 children and families in El Paso detention centers on Friday July 19. The supply drive Donations went to The Salvation Army El Paso Texas. Volunteer coordinator, Brianna Graves, and a team of volunteers personally delivered the supplies to the migrant families.

“To the community members who donated, my humble appreciation; you are going to make a lot of people feel some semblance of dignity long lost to the conditions they now face,” Sunnanon posted on his Facebook page. “A special thank you to City of West Hollywood Government, Los Angeles City Hall, Serge Del Marr, Michael T Habicht III, ROAR Resistance, and John Erickson for organizing and collecting the supplies. You have my gratitude.”
