In the midst of one of the greatest refugees crises in history and a political season where immigration and refugees are a hot topic, we have a unique opportunity.
Regardless of how you feel about immigration as a policy, we can put our faith into action by serving our neighbors no matter where they may be from.
(See the message on “Love Where You Live: A Love Greater Than Religion“)
Here are some great ways to help a refugee family in need. All the proceeds will go to help provide transportation for a Syrian Refugee family who has been chosen by the organization called the Syrian American Refugee Aid (SARA) to receive the funds to purchase a car.
If you Eat or Shop at these businesses during the dates listed a portion of the proceeds will go to to aide a local Austin refugee family.
