CUPS has a well oiled process for receiving donated materials, such as medical equipment, school supplies, computers, and warm clothing, and delivering them to those in need in northeastern Mexico.
Supplies are dropped off at one of the Donation Locations listed on the CUPS web site.
A network of CUPS supporters and board members transport the donations by van, truck, and/or cars to McAllen, where part time CUPS employee Rafa Sanchez inventories them in our storage unit in Pharr.

Rafa coordinates with CUPS' Fidencio Perez and/or Principal Marco Gonzalez to deliver these supplies to Mexico. Fidencio has another storage room at his home in Sta. Librada, where supplies can be stored until delivered to those who need them
Fidencio works with educators and community leaders in Mexico to identify those in need, and he delivers medical equipment, school supplies, and warm clothing to them. Many of these contacts were cultivated by Louise Flippin many years ago. Marco Gonzalez and his wife are educators who help identify educational needs, and who help place computers in schools where most needed.
