THE STORY:

School is out, the sun is out, and our families are ready to have some summer fun!


I am starting this fundraiser to support our refugee families in the Denver Metro area. When refugees are resettled here they come with very minimal belongings. Swimsuits and swim safety gear are not items that are considered necessities as they leave their homes. Many of IRC's clients are families with young children and we hope to be able to provide them with items that would allow them to enjoy their local pools and outdoor facilities this summer. 


As we quickly move through summer, these same kiddos are going to be attending school this coming fall. IRC has resettled almost 50 school-aged children so far this year. I'm sure many of you are aware school supplies are not getting any cheaper based on your own back-to-school shopping, so this fundraiser will also help our families get the appropriate supplies to kick off school year. IRC's clients have fled from many countries around the world and I would love for us to welcome them with open arms. Let's get these kids out in the pool and back to school!


I am very grateful, as are our families, for your support and compassion!


All money raised will go towards the following items:

*Swimsuits and swim safety gear

*Back to school supplies

*Grocery gift cards

*If we are lucky enough to get additional funds, they will continue to go towards grocery gift cards, plus: bus passes and basic household items (such as bed sheets, towels, or furniture)


Please feel free to share this with your family and friends.
