    Is this a help illegal immigrants drive? Let's start with helping our citizens first.

    Eric - are you descended from Native Americans?

    chitown - I think you missed my point. Almost all of us have parents/grandparents/great-grandparents who were immigrants. There were those who escaped the Holocaust who came here illegally. There are many in the military with parents who brought them to the US illegally.

  • Let's not argue about who needs help this winter. This is a great non-government program for working men who are not eligible for government benefits.

    No Robin, I'm not a native American, my great great grandparents migrated legally from Italy. The key word, legally, they didn't sneak in and come here demanding entitlement.

    So your great, great grandparents weren't anarchists, people with epilepsy, beggars, and importers of prostitutes? Because before 1923, that was about the only kind of "illegal" immigrant there was (unless you were Chinese). To say they came here legally is to say there weren't any immigration quotas. Who's to say if they would have come here if there were.

  • Let's all mute Eric. I would love to help Marge_3!

  • Is there a specific date or do they accept donations all the time?

  • What's wrong with helping out someone in need, regardless of their status here?A little kindness goes a long way in this world, especially these days!

  • David 1929, I looked up some more information on the place that provides the help and it seems they are always accepting donations. The work was started by a nice lady named Gretchen Moore and she even drops by homes to pick donations up if they are large in size. Here is the link if you’d like to learn more. I am looking to reach out to volunteer to help myself! :))

  • Thanks.

    RobinWRP- very few victims escaped Holocaust 1938-1945 by "coming here illegally", so not appropriate example. US strictly enforced immigration quotas. In 1939, FDR & US refused to admit over 900 Jewish refugees who sailed from Germany on ship St. Louis, they were forcibly returned to Europe and many perished. US refused to accept thousands of Jewish children from Germany & annexed countries 1938-1939 whose desperate parents were willing to send them to safety, Great Britain however accepted over 10,000 of these children in heroic Kindertransport agreement with Germany. Most of their parents died in Holocaust. Story of St. Louis

    Mr. Heller - my point was that the definition of "coming here illegally" changes
