One by one, around Father's Day, the surge of Amazon boxes containing shirts, pants, underwear and many other items began arriving at an asylum-seeker rest center in the border town of McAllen, Texas.
Included in the packages were notes of support. One read: "As someone who has a dad who would do anything for their child I hope this helps a few of the dads that come through your doors with the same ideas."
The boxes started arriving as people across the country began to learn about President Donald Trump's policy of separating children from their families.

President Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser said in an interview published Sunday that the administration will soon present its Israeli-Palestinian peace plan, with or without input from Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
In an interview published in the Arabic language Al-Quds newspaper, Jared Kushner appealed directly to Palestinians and criticized Abbas, who has shunned the Trump team over its alleged pro-Israel bias, particularly on the fate of contested Jerusalem.
The interview came out after a weeklong trip around the region by Kushner and Mideast envoy Jason Greenblatt. The team met with leaders of Israel, Jordan, Qatar, Egypt and Saudi Arabia to discuss the worsening humanitarian situation in Gaza and the administration's proposals for a peace deal.
Celebration is mixing with defiance Sunday at New York City's annual march for gay pride.
The crowds packed the streets for the Heritage of Pride march, with rainbow flags out in force.
Onlookers say this year's event feels more like a protest than in past years.
"People that are oppressed are not going to go away, they're not going to be quiet, they're not going to be ignored," said Olivia Nadler, of Connecticut.
A suspect is dead after opening fire and injuring two police officers at a San Diego apartment late Saturday night, police said.
Police received a call about a "disturbance with violence" around 10:15 p.m. at the Tuscany Place apartment complex on the 4800 block of Rolando Court, about one mile from San Diego State University.
When officers responded, they smelled what they thought was smoke and fire and requested the assistance of the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department, San Diego police Chief David Nisleit said.

A Texas charitable organization says 32 immigrant parents separated from their children after crossing the U.S.-Mexico border were freed into its care Sunday, but they don't know where their kids are or when they might see them again despite government assurances that family reunification would be well organized.
The release is believed to be the first, large one of its kind since President Donald Trump signed an executive order Wednesday that preserved a "zero-tolerance" policy for entering the country illegally but ended the practice of separating immigrant parents and children. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement offered no immediate comment.
Ruben Garcia, director of Annunciation House in El Paso, said the group of both mothers and fathers includes some from Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras who arrived to his group after federal authorities withdrew criminal charges for illegal entry.
Throughout June, people have celebrated Pride Month and the LGBTQ community all around the world with festivals and parades.
Migrants are finding it harder to claim asylum at U.S. ports of entry due to the facilities being overcrowded, part of an effort by U.S. officials to curb the number of migrants setting foot on U.S. territory, NBC News reported.
Under international and U.S. law, a person that has touched down on U.S. soil must legally be allowed to make a claim for asylum.
U.S. officials at the border have reportedly told families that there is no room for them at the ports of entry and that they should either wait for foot traffic to cease or come back another time.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan won Turkey's landmark election Sunday, the country's electoral commission said, ushering in a new system granting the president sweeping new powers which critics say will cement what they call a one-man rule.
The presidential and parliamentary elections, held more than a year early, complete NATO-member Turkey's transition from a parliamentary system of government to a presidential one in a process started with a referendum last year.
"The nation has entrusted to me the responsibility of the presidency and the executive duty," Erdogan said in televised remarks from Istanbul after a near-complete count carried by the state-run Anadolu news agency gave him the majority needed to avoid a runoff.
Twenty-five people were injured, four of them severely, when an explosion destroyed an apartment building in the western German city of Wuppertal, police said Sunday.
Police said the explosion rocked the several-story building shortly before midnight Saturday with a large bang, scaring people in surrounding homes so much they ran out into the street in a panic. The detonation was so severe it destroyed the building's attic and the top three floors, the German news agency dpa reported.
Fire then broke out in several different parts of the apartment building and firefighters had trouble dousing the flames because parts of the building kept collapsing. They were able to rescue four severely injured from inside the building and sent them to the hospital. Another 21 people were slightly injured and treated by emergency staff at the scene.
Republican apprehension over President Donald Trump's next tweet and fear of riling conservative voters is undermining GOP leaders' election-year struggle to shove an immigration bill through the House this week, leaving their prospects dubious.
Party leaders are trying to finally secure the votes they need for their wide-ranging bill with tweaks they hope will goose support from the GOP's dueling conservative and moderate wings. But more importantly, wavering Republicans want Trump to provide political cover for immigration legislation that's despised by hard-right voters. His recent statements on their bill and history of abruptly flip-flopping on past health care and spending measures have not been reassuring.
