With generous spirits, we at Cincinnati Friends Meeting have donated more than $1,100 in gift cards to Cincinnati Immigrant Transit Assistance (CITA). These gift cards have been used to help meet the basic needs of immigrants as they are passing through our area. CITA volunteers greet immigrants several times a day at the Greyhound bus station in Cincinnati as they continue their journeys to various locations throughout the United States.
Our gift cards, as well as cards from other groups, have helped CITA provide food, personal care items, diapers and more to meet immediate needs.
Our Peace and Social Concerns Committee honors each of you who decided to give meaning to our commitment as a Solidarity Congregation through your caring support of this effort. Thank you for responding immediately and generously to the need when the call came.
