SHC is an organization started by three women in Maryland with the assistance of a number of Churches and Synagogues in the area. It is now an interdenominational non profit organization working hard to assist Refugees settled in the greater Washington, DC area. After a visit from one of the founders to St. Dunstan's a while back Donna Alvarez and I started tutoring home-bound Refugee women in their homes in Prince George's County. We have now been tutoring for nearly two years and feel blessed to have the many friendships we have developed with our ladies.
SHC has an annual drive to collect backpacks, school supplies and school uniforms. [PG County has school uniforms]. We have attended the distribution of these and seen how appreciative the families are for a helping hand. The backpack drive is simple, just fill it with the list of items on the handout (available in Founder's Hall) and bring it to St. Dunstan's by August 25th and we will see that they are given to SHC for distribution.
