Event Description

IRIS is holding a Thanksgiving Celebration for newly arrived refugees on Saturday, November 17th out of a desire to share all the good things we have with them and to host a time for refugees to gather in gratitude and fellowship.

Please join us in preparing to host an authentic Thanksgiving meal with music and activities for 150-200 refugees from all over the world. This event depends completely upon the contributions and efforts of volunteers and community groups. Below are three ways you can contribute to this event:

1)   Donate food, drink, and serving items: we will gladly accept either homemade or storebought items, or help us by asking restaurants to donate food, drink, and serving items to share with our clients. Click HERE for the full list of items we need donated in order to host a Thanksgiving meal for 150-200 refugees. Ready to donate? Fill out the Google form HERE! 

2)  Serve on the day of the event: Ready to help with anything from decorating the parish hall, dishing up meals, running children's activities, leading adult activities, or packaging up Thanksgiving leftovers for refugees to take home? Click HERE to sign up to serve! Serve and ask your family, friends, or community group to serve refugees alongside you!

3)  Entertain through music, dance, drama, etc: perform or help recruit music or other live entertainment for refugees during the event! All types of acts are welcome to contact us-- we simply want entertainment that refugees will enjoy. Singers, musicians, or other acts with an East African, Cuban, or Middle Eastern flavor would be especially wonderful! Click HERE if you or someone you know is interested in entertaining.

Investing in Immigrant Communities = Investing in America

A new LISC white paper examines the ways current federal immigration policy is affecting immigrant residents across the country, and how our nonprofit partners are responding to meet the needs, and address the fear, of immigrants and their families. In the blog below, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones and David Greenberg, our head of research and lead author of the report, weigh in on why supporting the wellbeing and prosperity of immigrant communities—and of the agencies that serve them—is in every American’s best interest.

From Vacant to Valuable: Four New Communities Eligible for Replay Grants

ESPN, Under Armour and LISC have announced that four new communities are eligible for grants through the Replay initiative to transform vacant lots into community recreation hubs. The program, which is in its second year, will award a total of $430,000 to help neighborhood groups in Atlanta, Detroit, Oakland, and Toledo ensure that sports and recreation are accessible to all residents. As LISC’s senior program director for Sports & Recreation, Beverly Smith, stated, “Our on-the-ground experience in local communities coupled with the resources and expertise of ESPN and Under Armour has been a highly successful formula for creating useful recreational spaces.”

LISC Launches Charlotte Program Office

As we kick off 2019, LISC is continuing to grow its investments in economic opportunity and its on-the-ground presence in communities across the country. We unveiled a new program office in Charlotte this week that will spearhead $25 million in investments over the next few years—all designed to boost affordable housing, improve economic mobility and raise standards of living in North Carolina’s largest city. Long-time community leader Ralphine Caldwell has been named executive director to lead the effort.
