Brophy College Prep Raises Funds for Immigrants at U.S./Mexico Border

Brophy College Preparatory in Phoenix hosted a fundraising dinner for the Kino Border Initiative, a nonprofit in Nogales, Ariz., and Nogales, Sonora, Mexico, dedicated to providing food, clothing, and shelter to migrants. More than $150,000 was raised at the March 25 event to support the KBI work restoring dignity and providing basic human services for thousands of men, women, and children every year.

Brophy’s Office of Faith and Justice sponsors several trips to KBI each year, sending students and faculty to the border to work with KBI and listen to the stories of the people on the border, and ultimately to tell those stories. These are people, sometimes raised from a young age in America, who now have been deported and separated from their children. They are impoverished and powerless, and often KBI is their only resource and safe place. Kino Border Initiative truly lives the directive of St. Ignatius that love must be shown more in deeds than in words.

Cronkite News/PBS talked to a Brophy student who has volunteered at KBI, and Pete Burr, Brophy’s digital media manager, has produced videos on the work of KBI.
