The arrival of about 25 motorcycles announced the donation of 30,000 non-perishable meals for migrants being processed at a facility in New Mexico.
Las Cruces Fire Department Battalion Chief Michael Daniels, the emergency operations commander on scene, said the donation was a welcome surprise.
The bikers arrived Friday ready to unload five or six pallets’ worth of meals from Pack Away Hunger, an Indiana-based nonprofit that distributes meals in pouches that can be prepared with hot water. The organization delivers to countries worldwide.
They arrived without announcement, and with the help of migrants, who immediately lined up to assist, the meals were unloaded in minutes.
