This year, Horizons will once again join forces with Jewish Family and Community Services of the East Bay (JFCSEB) to provide holiday gifts for 40 LGBTQ refugees who have recently relocated to the SF Bay Area through JFCSEB's resettlement program.
These LGBTQ refugees have fled in fear for their lives, not only from their governments, but often their own families.
But this holiday season, there's a way for you to help.
Help us raise $6,000 to purchase gift cards to give as holiday gifts to the refugees.
They can use these gift cards to buy whatever they need most — often sweaters and scarves for the chilly weather.
Help give the refugees a warm welcome to the SF Bay Area!
Meet Sergo, one of the LGBTQ refugees supported by JFCSEB.
"Our LGBTQ clients have been through untold suffering in their lives, and come to the U.S. with nothing. To receive a gift card and some small gift is really a huge thing for our clients."
