Jaburg Wilk partnered with nonprofit organization Catholic Charities to collect personal hygiene items for refugees.
Refugees are individuals who have fled their countries of origin and who meet the United Nations' criteria of having a "well-founded fear of persecution for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion."
Each year, the President of the United States authorizes the admission of a certain number of refugees into the country. Before admission to the U.S., refugees are cleared by the Department of Homeland Security to become America’s future citizens. Refugees often arrive with a little more than a suitcase. They need everything to begin a new life.
