BENEFITING: International Rescue Committee
All of the IRC in Oakland’s fall term interns are banding together to raise crucial funding that will help provide flexible programming to newly arrived refugees. Our goal is $5,000.
There are currently 60 million refugees around the world. Last fiscal year, Oakland resettled 425 refugees from Afghanistan, Syria, Burma, Eritrea, and the Congo, just to name a few.
If you’ve been following the news about the refugee crisis, but have been unsure how you can help, this is your opportunity. Help welcome them by making a gift to our intern fundraising campaign that will benefit the International Rescue Committee!
Your gift will help the IRC provide important programming beyond basic resettlement – financial coaching, career development, nutrition education, community gardening – so refugees can rebuild stable, productive lives in the U.S.
