Young volunteers gather supplies for undocumented immigrant children

(KING)  While Washington state’s Joint Base Lewis-McChord is still waiting to hear whether it will house hundreds of undocumented children crossing the border, some youth in the Puget Sound area are already doing what they can to help.

With summer in full swing, 16-year-old AJ Sailiai could be doing anything. So he and some 30 other kids chose to be at the World Vision Pacific Northwest storehouse in Fife.

“When I think about what I’m going through and what they’re going through, I’m living a paradise compared to what they’ve gone through and seen,” said Sailiai.

The youth volunteers were stuffing backpacks with supplies and writing notes of encouragement to kids they may never meet.
