Help Our Immigration Efforts this Month
Take Action to Support Afghan Allies: Seattle is one of the communities in the U.S. currently receiving refugees from Afghanistan, and refugee resettlement agencies in the Seattle area are scrambling to find assistance to help our Afghan allies as they arrive. Agencies will likely have less than 24 hours of notice before families and individuals arrive. Congregation Beth Shalom and Temple Beth Am are building a partnership with JFS/HIAS in their resettlement services. If you are interested in getting involved as a volunteer and staying up to date with our support efforts please fill out this Volunteer Interest Survey. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSf7TlJlaOvDdmYLMvv_xxciFZ5DIdP8yLZ3JYrCKOMctYE7Mg/viewform
Donate in Kind to Afghan Allies: Jewish Family Services has urgent in-kind donation needs for diapers, car seats and more. Visit their Amazon wishlist to purchase and send items directly to JFS: https://www.amazon.com/registries/custom/30OKQF4EANM4V/guest-view.
Make a Monetary Donation: As easy as putting money in the tzedakah box, you can now donate to immigrant and refugee causes through the Social Action Fund by Venmo, Paypal, or credit card at https://givebutter.com/tzedakah. Choose “aid for refugees and immigrants” to support the resettlement of Afghan allies (for a family of five, a first month costs around $4,400, and the financial needs don’t stop there) or direct your donation to the Jewish Coalition and WAISN’s Fair Fight Bond Fund to assist detained immigrations in Tacoma.
