EDINBURG - The University of Texas-Pan American has set up collection boxes to help the hundreds of illegal immigrants coming across the border.

The College of Health Sciences and Human Services is asking for a variety of hygiene-related items. Dr. John Ronau said officials asked for the help.

"Our local, county, state and national authorities are doing all that they possibly can to meet the needs, but there are just so many people and not enough materials to help out," Ronau said.

The school set up the collection boxes at seven locations on campus.
