On Saturday December 16, 2013 Alif received a special visit from from IRC's representative Mr. Duncan de la Fled.
From November 1, 2013 until December 16, 2013 Alif collected non perishable food items to donate to IRC Food Bank. Amana Academy School partnered with us in this project.
Mr. Duncan de la Fled came in person to Alif Institute to thank the children and parents for their generosity, and had this message to share with us and with Amana Academy:
“Thank you so much for your overwhelming donation. I have to tell you that I have been the Donations Coordinator for the IRC for almost 3 years, and this is by far the largest food donation we have received. I hope that you - and everyone who contributed - know how much of an impact you are making in the lives of recently resettled refugees.”
A warm thank you to all Alif members, friends and visitors that contributed to this food drive!
