BENEFITING: International Rescue Committee - Northern CA
Help Northern California Refugee Families In This Time of Uncertainty
GGMG is proud to be an organization comprised of passionate and caring members of the community. In light of the recent political climate, the Drives and Donations Committee has elected to add an additional fundraiser to our calendar to support local refugees and assylum seekers. We have partnered with the International Rescue Committee (IRC) and are soliciting funds to support their mission in Northern California.
The IRC helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster survive, recover and regain control of their future. Locally, there are chapter offices in Oakland and San Jose who help to settle newly arrived refugees by helping them find and furnish housing, learn English, gain job skills and learn to manage their finances in a new culture.
The IRC seeks to help families resettle with dignity and the support that they need to recover from the traumas of the past and to build a better future in their new homes. GGMG can aid in these efforts by raising awareness of the needs and by funding their efforts.
