New Migrant Donation Site - Jewish Community Response

Hundreds of migrants are in need of urgent assistance, having arrived in Denver in recent weeks from countries in South and Central America. City officials say they are preparing for more arrivals as people seek safety from unrest and political turmoil in their home countries and shelter from the extreme cold. The city has opened emergency shelters and is asking for help from the community to help provide temporary assistance.

Temple Emanuel,  JEWISHcolorado’s Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) and the greater Denver Jewish Community have been working with Denver’s Office of Human Rights and Community Partnerships and the Denver Office of Emergency Management to find community-wide solutions to alleviate the suffering of recent arrivals.
