Books For Refugees
Recent data shows that there are aproxmately 60,000 refugees living in Utah. Most of them are in Salt Lake County and the majority are women and children. These refugees have fled their homes because of fear persecution and other serious human rights violations. Many come from countries with completely different cultures and languages.
Because of this, I am doing a book drive to donate English picture dictionaries and word books to the many refugees now living in Utah. I will be raising money and Usborne will match 50% of our funds!
The books will be given to the Utah Refugee Connection (serverefugees.org) who will distribute them among the new comers. The colorful, high quality books will then be able to aid these wonderful people in learning English.
Thank you for your interest and concern. Please donate what you can and help spread the word.
