Thanks to your generosity we have been able to raise a total of $75,000 for our refugee neighbors in crisis! In this second round distributed an additional $22,250 in direct cash assistance to 89 families through the Refugee Assistance fund.</p> <p>One June 18th we hosted a Distribution Day event at our office where families could come collect their check and receive other essential materials to help them in this difficult time. We had 70 families attend, 23 of whom filled out the census with the help of our amazing volunteers and information translated in their own language. Additionally, we were able to hand out over $5,000 worth of donated food, baby supplies, and other goods thanks to our amazing partners: <a href="https://www.pittsburghfoodbank.org/">The Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank</a>, <a href="https://artsmithspgh.org/">The Artsmiths of Pittsburgh</a>, <a href="https://www.beverlysbirthdays.org/">Beverly’s Birthdays</a>, <a href="https://trustarts.org/">The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust</a> and <a href="https://groundedpgh.org/">Grounded</a>.</p> <p>Thank you to everyone who donated, volunteered and attended this event to make it such a remarkable success!</p></article>
