Holiday Gift Drive
As the holiday season approaches, the IRC in New York is gearing up to host its 10th annual Holiday Gift Drive for all the refugee men, women and children who were resettled in the New York and New Jersey area over the last year. In the hope of making each family's first holiday in America especially memorable, we kindly request your participation in our Holiday Gift Drive. The IRC in New York would like to distribute at least one new gift to every refugee family, thereby giving them the opportunity to joyfully celebrate their first holiday season in the place they now call home.
Please visit the IRC in New York's online registry by following these few simple steps:
1) Go to www.target.com
2) Select "Registries", followed by "Club Wedd"
3) Our registry is listed under, First name: "IRC" - Last name: "New York"
As part of the Holiday Gift Drive, in addition to the gift registry, we encourage donations in the form of gift cards, allowing refugee families access to a wide range of essential items, including winter clothing, household supplies and children’s toys.
For example, a gift card of $25 or more could cover the cost of:
• School supplies for one child at CVS;
• A season’s worth of warm winter clothing for an infant or toddler from TJ Maxx;
• Cookware and other kitchen supplies for an entire family from Target.
On behalf of all the staff and refugee families we serve, thank you for your continued support.
