Sunday, AUGUST 13th is the Apartment Makeover Day when we will take our donations to the new apartment and get to meet the refugee family!

Refugees are men, women and children fleeing war, persecution and political upheaval who have crossed borders to seek safety in another country. IRC president and CEO David Miliband said: "A robust resettlement program ... furthers US foreign policy and national security goals, brings positive economic contributions to U.S. communities, keeps families together, and most importantly saves lives."
