SAN ANTONIO - As Mexico works to recover from several back-to-back earthquakes that have shaken the country, neighbors at San Antonio's International Language Center are offering a helping hand.
"We have family there," SAID Dora Stronza with the International Language Center at San Antonio (ILCSA). "They're okay but everybody's helping."
From first responders to civilians, the country is coming together after watching it violently torn apart. Meanwhile, here in San Antonio, ILCSA is offering relief by collecting donations to send to victims.
"Not only in Mexico City, but Puebla, Oaxaca, Chiapas and Morelos," Stronza noted.
They're gathering toiletries, non-perishables, toys, and even masks for emergency crews and volunteers assisting in search and rescue. Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto said that recovery and relief efforts will continue until those who are unaccounted for are found.
"A lot of people have been coming, it doesn't matter their nationality, the language they speak," Stronza said. "A lot of people have been helping us, bringing a lot of things and sending their heart and love to the people in Mexico that need it."
To donate, visit the International Learning Center at San Antonio Tuesday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. The goods will be sent to Mexico on Friday, September 29.
