| World Refugee Day is June 20th. Help the Tikkun Olam Committee recognize the contributions of refugees to communities across America and support the International Rescue Committee (IRC) by donating to its Amazon Wish List Program during the month of June. The IRC provides opportunities for refugees, asylees, victims of human trafficking, survivors of torture, and other immigrants to thrive in America.
The IRC in Silver Spring has created several lists based on specific requests from refugee families it serves. Due to the low number of refugee arrivals because of COVID-19, the IRC created additional lists containing Visa gift cards that will be distributed to families by the IRC when they arrive.

Send your donation confirmation to Kyle.Monsees@Rescue.org noting your affiliation with Temple Shalom so the IRC can thank you for your support. If you have any questions, please email us at TikkunOlam@templeshalom.net
