Easing first-day jitters
The first day of school can be an anxious one for any child. Imagine the first-day jitters of a refugee child—the new kid not only in class, but in an entirely new country. We offer school supplies, along with caring guidance and support, to help thousands of refugee children settle into their new schools in the United States. $20 can fill a child’s backpack with school supplies, helping a new kid feel ready for that big first day.
Give a Rescue Gift now and your gift to the IRC will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $1 million by generous friends of the IRC. Through Dec. 31, 2013.
