Kristen Borash wrote -All of the IRC in Oakland’s summer 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. So far this year, a tiny 174 have been resettled in Oakland. 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.
