Thank You!

20 January 2017 Published in News & Events

Your donations and volunteerism during the holidays enabled us to ensure that every family had a happy holiday season by providing 1,500 homeless, low-income, and refugee families with gifts of warm clothes and educational toys through our Gift of the Drummer program and 2,644 holiday meals to those in need through our Holiday Food Drive so everyone could enjoy this magical season in their own homes with their family and friends!

But it's not just during the holidays that you give us so much support. This past year you have served 77,000 volunteer hours, allowing us to resettle 632 refugees, care for 103 unacompanied refugee minors, help 1,400 people on their path to citizenship, provide 300,000 meals to our homeless friends, and distributed 2.7 million pounds of food, including 21,000 food boxes through our childhood hunger initiative, Bridging the Gap.
