At past parties we have requested attendees to bring food items
for donations to the food bank. This year we wish to change our
focus to assist the Dallas chapter of the International Rescue
Committee. The IRC works to assist people rebuild their lives in
post-conflict countries. The Dallas chapter helps new arrivals
get settled, adjust and acquire the skills to become
self-sufficient. Many of these refugees arrive with little more
than they could carry out. What they urgently need are good
coats and sweaters for winter. If you have some of these old
items gathering dust please bring them along to donate. If
don�t have any old clothes items do donate diapers and wipes
are also in need. Cash is also welcome. To learn more about the
IRC see their web site at www.theIRC.org.
