International Rescue Committee (IRC)

IRC Adopt-A-Family Holiday Campaign

This holiday season, the IRC in San Diego invites you to share the spirit of giving.  

Many refugees arrive in the US with little more than the clothes on their backs and hope for a better future. The IRC Adopt-A-Family program offers individuals and organizations the opportunity to make a refugee family’s first holiday season in the United States one they will always remember.

If interested, you will shop for
- one new blanket,
- one large cooking pot and 
- two toys (the IRC will assign you an age group for the toys).

You are free to purchase additional items that you feel a new refugee family would enjoy. The IRC will distribute the gifts and share photos with you of the families. Please bring the items to the IRC office during the week of December 7 to 13, 2011. 

Your donations are tax deductable to the fullest extent allowable by law.

Please help us spread the word to co-workers, friends, and family members. 

For more information or to participate in the campaign, please email Sneha at

Happy Holidays!
