    Families seeking asylum are feeling the pressure to keep themselves afloat while trying to rebuild their lives with hope and dignity. This festive season, you can help shine a light of hope for them by donating to provide much-needed wrap-around care. Your support means people can access the ASRC Foodbank, Health Clinic and other essential services, all under one roof.

    Just in time for the Festive Season, the ASRC Shop is back with meaningful gifts that do good. All your favourite artist collaborations, gift boxes from ASRC Catering and ASRC Cleaning, and value-statement pieces to show your support of refugees. Shopping from the ASRC Shop this giving season is another way to enable the programs and services that support refugees and people seeking asylum.

    The ASRC’s annual Festive Food Drive is back on Sunday, December 3rd and your support is more impactful than ever.

    With rising living costs and people seeking asylum relying on the ASRC Foodbank, we are calling on our community of compassion to aid us in helping to provide food for around 1,200 people each month.
