Empty Your Pockets Campaign: Homes Not Borders
Sponsored by TI Social Action Committee

Each year, the Social Action Committee selects a charity, and encourages TI members to "empty their pockets" during the High Holidays to support the cause. This year the Committee selected Homes not Borders, a response to the crisis in Afghanistan, which has created a surge of refugee, special immigrant visa and asylum seekers who need our immediate support. Contributions will help to provide household items, including necessities like sheets, cookware and furniture to ensure that families can thrive here. Donate here.  Questions? Contact Gene Herman.
