This weekend we kick off the “Share the Journey Campaign” in which we seek to promote encounters with immigrants and refugees (click here). In keeping with this focus, our POOR BOX COLLECTION is for the International Rescue Committee – Baltimore.
The International Rescue Committee provides opportunities for refugees, asylees, victims of human trafficking, survivors of torture, and other immigrants to thrive in America. Each year, thousands of people, forced to flee violence and persecution, are welcomed by the people of the United States into the safety and freedom of America. These individuals have survived against incredible odds. The IRC works with government bodies, civil society actors, and local volunteers to help them translate their past experiences into assets that are valuable to their new communities. In Baltimore and other offices across the country, the IRC helps them to rebuild their lives. If you would like to learn more about this organization you can visit their website by clicking here.
If you would like to donate, the Poor Boxes are located in the Chapel of Grace and in the Narthex of the church at the top of both side stairs. Thank you for your support.
