- OPPORTUNITY – REMINDER
At the request of the U.S. Government, the International Rescue Committee has been resettling Syrian refugees in New Jersey.
They’ve been doing excellent work with minimal resources; USG gives newly arrived refugees a one-time cash allowance of $925 per person. This money has to cover every living expense from rent and furniture, to clothing, transportation, food and utilities.
The kids are required to wear uniforms for public school (K-12). At $50.00 per uniform, a family with three kids will spend $150. Most do not have laundry facilities at home, necessitating time and expense of laundering off site, which is hard to do with only one uniform per child.
Parents work 60+ hours in minimum wage jobs to cover survival needs, leaving little room for other expenses. At present, IRC has about 1,200 children living in towns where uniforms are required.
Most of these kids have been deprived of an education due to the conflicts which propelled their exodus. They’ve been dreaming of school and now have a chance to resume.
Here is an opportunity for our KRA community to make a direct impact on people’s lives in a profound and seriously Tikkun Olam way.
Our goal is to raise at least $5,000 for the uniforms.
