Adopt-a-Family and Gift Card Donors Still Needed!
We’ve had a wonderful community response to our call for Adopt-a-Family donors, but we could still use more! We are also accepting gift card donations if you are unable to shop for an entire household.
The IRC Adopt-a-Family program matches community sponsors with refugees resettled in 2010. Through Adopt-a-Family you have an opportunity to bring joy to these new arrivals and help make individuals and families feel welcomed into our community.
Each refugee household is matched with a donor who shops, wraps, and delivers gifts between December 11- 22nd. Most family's wish lists consist of basic items such as winter clothing, socks, shoes and boots, school supplies and toys for the kids.
Make a difference in the lives of a refugee family this year. Please talk to your co-workers, friends, family members - anyone you think might be interested - to see if they would like to sponsor a family this year.
For further information, please email us at Seattle@theIRC.org and put Adopt-a-Family in the subject line or call 206-623-2105.
