"To the world you may be one person, But to one person you may be the world."
It is the festive season again and tens of loved and cherished children are waiting expectantly for the joy of the holidays and festivities to materialize.
One of the things that Pars Equality Center does is to bring this same kind of joy to the lives of the kids and new comer familes in our care, with the backing of supporters like you. A joy that most of them have never experienced before in their lives, before coming to the USA.
As you know we can't do this alone. That is why we are reaching out to our supporters to make this festive season an occasion for sharing their good fortune with the families in our care.
The goal of our Christmas appeal this year is to receive toys or gift cards suitable for the following children:
9 girls, ages: 2,3,5,7,11,14,15,17 and 18
9 boys, ages: 3,4,8,9,10,11,12,14 and 15
Please come to our rescue and help us help others. Your support means a lot to us.
Wishing you a very joyous holiday season.
With warm regards,
About Pars Equality Center:
The mission of Pars Equality Center is to support the full integration of people of Persian (Iranian) origin in the United States, including refugees, asylees, immigrants and the American-born; and to advocate for their perspectives in American society. We work to create a more just and compassionate community in which Iranians of all cultures and beliefs can participate.
Social Services: The Social Services Department of Pars Equality Center serves and advocates for Iranian families and individuals in need, especially refugees, asylees and those living in poverty. Our Farsi-speaking staff help new arrivals and other low-income Iranian families or individuals successfully adjust to living in the San Francisco Bay Area, and overcome barriers to self-sufficiency.
Legal Services: Pars Equality Center provides legal services to the Iranian American community on a sliding scale fee basis. A large portion of Pars' current legal services is related to the Iran Sanctions regulations. We work to ensure that Iranian Americans can maintain familial ties with Iran despite the current political climate.
