The U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) is a private non-profit that has served refugees and immigrants across the country since 1911. USCRI’s Des Moines Field Office (USCRI Des Moines) has been bringing hope and opportunity to Iowa’s newest community members since 2010, welcoming over 4,000 refugees from around the world to Central Iowa.
When refugees arrive in Des Moines, USCRI meets them at the airport and transports them to their new home. Help purchase a "new to us" moving truck to collect donated household items and set up apartments for refugee families. We have raised $16,000 towards our goal of $21,000. Your donation will allow us to buy a quality used vehicle that will serve the agency and the community for years to come.
