Welcome, or welcome back to Social Civics! Our fundraiser this month is both timely and local. We will be supporting Integrated Refugee and Immigrant Service of CT (IRIS for short). IRIS is a non-sectarian, independent nonprofit refugee resettlement agency that has welcomed more than 5,000 refugees to Connecticut since 1982. You can learn more about IRIS here: http://www.irisct.org
The model for Social Civics remains the same: a series of get togethers, part support group, part fundraiser, each supporting a different cause. Instead of showing up with a bottle of wine or cocktail napkins, please bring the money you would have spent on your Two Buck Chuck, Ten Buck Pinot Grigio, the change from the bottom of your purse, or whatever you can manage & contribute it to our cause that night. We'll have some time together for comfort and companionship and can end the evening feeling that there's at least one more drop in the bucket to make things better.
