Refugee Resettlement Committee Needs Donations
Like a stone tossed into a still pool, President Trump’s executive order on immigration rippled into Salt Lake City with destabilizing effect. A planned apartment set-up by the Refugee Resettlement Committee was cancelled by the International Refugee Committee (IRC), citing Trump’s “reckless and discriminatory executive order.” As protests erupted like flash mobs around the country, IRC announced that furniture donations would continue to be collected so long as it had capacity to store it. Call Joe Dubray at (904) 527-9773 for details. Those interested in contributing money to the IRC can do so on its website.
