Donate on their behalf to refugee families.
Why give this gift?
The first day of school can be an anxious one for any child.
Imagine the first-day jitters of a refugee child—the new kid in an entirely new country.
We offer school supplies, along with caring guidance and support, to help refugee children settle into their new schools in the United States.
$20 can fill a child’s backpack with school supplies, helping a new kid feel ready for that big first day.

I like being able to donate in my parent's name for birthdays, Christmas, Mother's and Father's Day. And they like knowing their gift means something.
