The Refugee Direct Assistance Committee, a subcommittee of the Temple Shalom Tikkun Olam Committee, is excited to kick-off of a new program.
We have chosen to support the International Rescue Committee, the largest resettlement agency in Maryland, resettling around 1,200 in Baltimore and 800 in Prince George's counties, representing 12 different nationalities (most from Syria, Afghanistan, and Congo).
Various donated items are needed, and there are volunteer opportunities we are learning more about. At present, the committee has chosen begin with a donation campaign for much-needed items. We are kicking off with a drive for baby diapers and baby wipes. Donation boxes will be located in the sanctuary and downstairs lobbies. We will continue the donation drive through the summer months with items changing every 3-4 weeks. Watch for updates.
