Tbm Responds After El Paso Shooting

TBM volunteers were asked to serve first responders and and families affected by the Aug. 3 mass shooting at an El Paso shopping center. 

“This is a deeply tragic event today in El Paso," said Dwain Carter, TBM Disaster Relief director. "We are praying for everyone affected by this event. We have mobilized TBM volunteers to serve in partnership with the Salvation Army feeding first responders and at the family reunification center.”

TBM volunteers directed traffic, unloaded donations and prepared them for distribution to first responders as well as the family reunification center.

Reports indicate 22 people were killed in a shooting at an El Paso shopping center this morning and 26 more were injured.
