The IRC in Seattle is excited to announce another season of Winter Welcome! Winter Welcome is an opportunity to warmly welcome refugees and immigrants to our community by providing gifts to kids & families and celebrating together at IRC's annual Winter Welcome Festival. 

Each sponsor is asked to contribute children’s gifts, a gift card, an educational or work-related gift, and an additional gift for the whole family. This is a great way for families, friends, colleagues, or classmates to team up and sponsor a family together! 

Sign up for Winter Welcome here

(Note: If list appears "sold out" please check back later. Additional families will be added by Dec 6th.)

Save the date for Winter Welcome Festival on Saturday, January 11, 2020 from 12-3pm at Bow Lake Elementary School. All sponsors, participating IRC families, and other community supporters are invited to join us to distribute gifts and celebrate the new year together with games, food, and a whole lot of fun. We're currently seeking volunteer groups to help coordinate games and activities, and/or contribute food for the event. Seattle [at] Rescue.org (Email us) if interested!

Check out the sign-up page for Winter Welcome FAQs and further guidance about participating as a sponsor. If you have any additional questions or concerns, please contact Stephanie at Seattle [at] Rescue.org.

Thank you for your support!
