“Thank you, PoPville Community for your generous donations to detained immigrant children!”


“Dear PoPville,

Thank you, PoPville Community for your  generous donations to detained immigrant children!
Last month you shared a post about CAIR Coalition’s Noviembre de Niños campaign with PoPville readers. The days following your post, donations of books and art supplies through our Amazon wishlist soared! We were overwhelmed with the flood of donations.
Last week, CAIR Coalition was thrilled to donate 7 boxes full of donations to a detention facility, including 35 backpacks filled with goodies such as coloring books, DVDs. crayons, origami sets, a full set of Harry Potter books, and more! These gifts will brighten up the holidays for detained youth in the DMV region.
We could not have done it without you. Your continuing support is also greatly appreciated and imperative to allow us to continue to serve detained immigrant children in the area. Please become a member or sign up for our newsletter and keep up to date on our work!
Can you please share our thanks?  The attached picture is of two of our staff with some of the donations at the detention facility.”
