We, the hyde park refugee project, are thrilled to report that we have exceeded our goal of raising $10,000 to support refugee families in our neighborhood, and we could not have done it without you!
All of the families we work with have been impacted in some way by covid-19. With these funds and previously raised funds, we have already provided $9,895 to six families (12 adults and 28 kids) over the last three months. Funds have gone to cover direct rent costs, assistance with utilities and bills, food cost, and help with moving costs for one family.
Your donations have made a tangible difference in the lives of these families. The more we are able to raise, the more that goes directly to these families as they seek employment opportunities and navigate covid-19 realities.
Thank you again. We appreciate you from the bottom of our hearts!
All of us at The Hyde Park Refugee Project
