TO SPONSOR A SYRIAN REFUGEE FAMILY…
The Social Justice Committee is thrilled to announce that the Danforth Jewish Circle has raised $55,000 to sponsor a family of refugees in need. We surpassed our initial fundraising goal ! We are truly humbled.
Our committee is now working with Jewish Immigrant Aid Services to get matched with a family, to secure approval from the federal government and to execute a settlement plan.
Over 45 people have offered their services – including the committee that’s almost 60 volunteers. We still need specific expertise in the areas of event planning, medical and legal help. We will soon need storage space for collected household items and furniture. This is a long term volunteer project so please take a moment to let us know how you would like to help. (See below)
We know that our community is up to the task of helping a family make a new home. We can’t thank you enough, friends! We really look forward to working with you on this project!
