As relief efforts continue in Mexico after being struck by multiple earthquakes this month, we’ve learned that not all heroes wear capes. But some have donned their intergalactic best. In Mexico City, on Popocatépetl 474, a group dressed up like Star Wars characters to collect much-needed supplies.

Standing among signs that read “centro de acopio de otra galaxia” and “#LaFuerzaEstáConMéxico,” they collected canned good, diapers, toys, water, and more to deliver to Morelos, an area that hasn’t gotten as much media coverage as Mexico City that also needs help. They posed for photos with those who donated goods, according to SDPnoticias.

The group will cosplay for a good cause again on September 30.
