REFUGEES


Refugees have come to America for one reason only – safety. These are mothers, fathers, children (more than half are children), all fleeing war and persecution. They can’t even grasp “the American dream.” They are in our country legally, looking for a safe haven. At this point, they need their basic needs met. And as good, kindhearted Nebraskans, we can help them.

Your donation can provide these newcomers with the tools they need to support themselves, give their children proper homes and warm meals, and have a chance at a better life. Everything you contribute adds up to a life saved. They’re not asking for a lot. Just a chance. And as Nebraskans, we pitch in and help our neighbors when they need it. We know that Nebraska is stronger is when everyone succeeds— together.
