Contribute to BJ’s Fund to Support Immigrants, Refugees, and Asylum Seekers
This Giving Tuesday, show your support for immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers as they build new lives here in the United States. We are so proud to be part of these stories and to help make them possible.
- With $40, a mother from Afghanistan can have a breast pump so she can leave her baby with her husband or another family member while she attends ESL classes.
- With $120, we can procure a Metrocard for a job-seeking asylee to travel to interviews, and for all the mothers we work with to attend prenatal appointments, job interviews and meetings with legal counsel.
- With $500, you can subsidize an entire month’s rent for a family as we did for a family from Chad, preventing their eviction when their primary breadwinner became ill.
How Does BJ Help?
BJ’s Refugee and Immigration Committee tackles the challenges of helping refugees, asylum seekers, and other immigrants in a myriad of ways, including cooking meals, providing ESL and English conversation practice, guiding families through school registration and job searches, offering second-hand clothing for newly-arrived refugee children, and driving refugee mothers home from the hospital following the delivery of their babies.
Your donation will make an immeasurable impact in the lives of immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers. From the Refugee and Immigration Committee and from all of us at BJ: THANK YOU.
