Hello, and happy March!
With your support, RefugeeOne was able to continue to support refugees in the Chicago area through 2010 and into 2011. As Chicago got hit with blizzards and subzero temperatures, we were able to provide clean, safe, and warm apartments to newly arriving refugees. The apartments we provide are fully-furnished with brand new furniture and other high quality items, thanks to the generous contributions of supporters like you.
In January, RefugeeOne hosted a Martin Luther King, Jr. Day literacy event for its Youth Program. Working with organizations Open Books and 826CHI, RefugeeOne was able to provide refugee youth with a day of writing workshops and creative activities, and each student took home 4-5 books.
This month, RefugeeOne staff is preparing for our 6th annual Many Voices, One Vision benefit event, to be held on March 18 at the Chicago Cultural Center. To find out more about our Many Voices, One Vision event, visit our web site.
You can find more updates about our current projects, news stories featuring our refugee clients, and other information on our Facebook page.
Thank you so much for your incredible support and for investing in our programs! Your contributions truly make all the difference in the world.
