AFGHAN REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT ASSISTANCE
We are expecting up to 2,000 Afghan refugees and their families to come to Washington State and we are raising funds to help them once they arrive here. We want to make sure none of them fall through the cracks and that they have everything they need to get off to a successful start in the US. We will be helping them with getting the basics for their apartments, clothing, school supplies, and learning about their community and how to get around. Our goal is to raise $150,000 for this effort.
EMERGENCY LEBANON FUND
SCM is sending aid in the form of humanitarian and medical supplies to Lebanon. Our manager in Jordan has been traveling to Lebanon to take supplies from our warehouse as excess luggage, and we are also buying food, medicines, equipment, and other needed supplies. Please donate to help the people of Lebanon as they struggle through the recovery from the massive explosion in August of 2020 and the total economic collapse in the country. Read more about our efforts here.
NEW LIFE FUND
SCM is supporting LGBTQI refugees to help them get to safety in Canada. They are extremely vulnerable and are often persecuted within the camps. They need help to get out of the camps and on their way to a new and safe life in Canada, but they lack the resources to do so. As part of our mission to help the most vulnerable refugees, we are starting a new fund to help cover living expenses outside the camps and other fees associated with their asylum and immigration cases. We have people on the ground who are bringing specific cases of people in danger to us that we will assist on a case by case basis. We are also partnering with an organization in Canada to accomplish this.
Please help us help them get out of the camps to safety and a new life in Canada.
HERE FOR YOU
SCM is helping a group called Here For You to raise money for their neighbors in need. You can contribute here to help them during this time of crisis in our state. Funds will be used to help pay rent and utilities.
Consider making a donation to our General Fund, to be used where the need is greatest at any given time. We have other causes and projects that we fund as we are able. If you see something specific that you would like to contribute to but it’s not listed above, you can donate here and write us note telling how you would like your donation used. Please do not use the word Syria or Syrian if you add a message to us. Thank you!
