Yesterday, May 1, 2019, Kevin Jennings and Jeffrey Davis helped us host RDJ Refugee Shelter’s first ever fundraising event. It was an inspiring night where our Executive Director, Edafe Okporo, welcomed new and long time supporters of the shelter and presented all of the work that we have been doing in supporting refugees and asylees.
Over three years, we have hosted more than 65 asylum seeking guests from over 5 continents. Last night, we were able to raise $13,000 from the ticket sales of our more than 80 guests who attended. This will help us continue our work in hosting more guests, helping our guests find permanent housing and employment, and advocating for the rights of all migrants.
We are thankful to all of our supporters; without them, this night would not have been possible.
