To help newly resettled refugee children assimilate
more easily into their American lives, by providing them with new and appropriate school clothing and supplies.
THE NEED IS GREAT:
The families we serve are trying to build a safe life for their children in our community, after having been forced from their home countries. Often they arrive with little but what they could carry. The families we focus on have been in our community for less than two years, and desperately need a helping hand.
OUR RESULTS ARE GRATIFYING:
Thanks to the generosity of so many volunteers and donors, our 2015 event served 383 children and 141 families from two different agencies: the African Community Center of Denver and Lutheran Family Services. In 2016, with your help, we stand ready
to do even more.
