Refugee Support Subcommittee
A dedicated group who believes that the 82.4 million children, women, and men who are refugees worldwide are our brothers and sisters. As part of our family, we must remember them and assist them in their effort to find a home that affords dignity and hope.
Started in 2016, as a response to the Syrian crisis, they have raised over $75,000 for the UNHCR Cash Assistance Program. Our Christmas fundraised resulted in an additional $5,765, that was contributed to HIAS PA for their work to resettle and support children, women, & men from Afghanistan who are refugees and evacuees in the Delaware Valley.
