We are rallying a group of volunteers, like you, with a passion to serve refugees, those who have fled their country of origin to escape violence or persecution, to join us in fundraising to support CRIS's Refugee Resettlement Program. This program helps newly resettled refugees in Central Ohio find housing, learn English, develop job skills, obtain medical care and acclimate to American culture, with its mission of self-sufficiency and successful integration into our community.
The recent Executive Order has been devastating to this program financially and, despite laying off nine staff members, CRIS needs our help to sustain the Refugee Resettlement Program through the next 7 months. Our goal is to raise $100,000 in the next 100 days.
By becoming a fundraiser for CRIS you will be ensuring these vital services are available to newly resettled refugees right here in Central Ohio, and you'll help your friends feel good about doing good.
Starting a fundraiser is easy to do, and it's fun. We'll give you all the tools you'll need to make a difference. With your help we will raise $100,000 in 100 days, send a message of support to immigrants and refugees in our community and ensure this vital program continues to serve refugees right here.
