Refugee Update in East Bay

When the MCC/SRVIC Refugee Support Team sets up apartments for new refugee arrivals, we like to send toys for the young children there. We’re running low on toys for specific age groups, so we’re requesting some (plus a few other supplies) on our Amazon wish list–please help! New toys only, please: https://mcceastbay.org/amazon

We also wanted to share the good news that we’ve given more than 100 bicycles to refugees, enabling transportation to work, shopping, classes, and other activities. We are looking for donations of adult bikes and volunteers to help with bike transportation. Please let us know how you can help at https://mcceastbay.org/bicycle

There are many other ways you can volunteer to help refugees and others in need:

Do not drop off used items at the Muslim Community Center or San Ramon Valley Islamic Center.
