A Word from Our Agency Director
Breakfast is over, virtually. We gathered together, virtually. And we raised over $20,000, actually. Thank you to the many donors for whom this event was a catalyst to contribute financially to our organization.
While there are many ways to be a part of the welcome, financial support is critical to the wellbeing of The Welcome to America Project and evolution of programs for the wonderful refugees whom we serve. You can still view our breakfast video here and donate here. Plus, Giving Tuesday on December 1st allows more opportunity to share.
You will see a number of unique programs in the coming months. We are currently focused on Warm Welcome Packages, our way to share with our refugee neighbors hit hard by COVID concerns, closing social distance from afar. We also are continuing our connection to the Congolese community with partner Freekicks @freekicks_az
and our sponsorship of FC Congo AZ, a sports and mentorship entity. In addition, we are piloting an on-line English language program with Arizona State University meant to enhance the many language learning efforts in the refugee and refugee resettlement community.
