SANDUSKY, OH (WTOL) - Natalia Alonso, 15, continues to help the children of the detained workers left behind after the ICE raids at Corso's in Sandusky and Castalia.

She is filling a third trailer with donations of items including food, toys, and books. She is also setting up an Amazon Wish List on the Facebook page Ninos de Corsos.

This allows people out of the area to mail donations through this service which volunteers deliver to these children and their caretakers.

Natalia spoke with WTOL 11's sister station WOIO in Cleveland . She said she hopes the kids see the support from neighbors and friends during this traumatic time for their families.

"It's like they're mourning, somebody that they're lost but the thing is, they're not lost, they're detained and some kids don't even want to get off the couch, they don't even play," said Natalia.

She also said someone donated a refrigerator for the donations of fresh vegetables and milk, and other items like laundry detergent.
