An update for volunteers and donors.
posted almost 5 years ago by BurlingtonFire from City of Burlington
Like everyone else we are in ‘wait and see mode’. In anticipation we have established this site to match Syrian Refugee Host Organizations in Burlington with citizens or groups who wish to donate goods, money or time. We ask everyone who wishes to donate or volunteer to register on this site and once our community host organizations and support groups have established the specific needs of the refugees in our community they will contact you directly. This is a long-term project that is only beginning.
As of noon on the 10th of December we have registered the following:
37 self-identified volunteers, including 9 volunteers who have stated that they have translation skills.
33 persons or families who have offered donations of items. The primary types of donation offerings to date have been clothing and bedding.
Note: All cash donations go directly to the community organizations who can be identified on this site under the ' donate cash' button and no money is handled by recovers.org or the City of Burlington.
