Syrian Refugee Crisis

Recently we held a couple of Syrian Refugee awareness conversations.

You may be wondering, “How can I help the Syrian Refugees? They are so far away.”

RBCC has partnered with LCBC and World Vision to invite you to make a difference in the lives of Syrian Refugees. A special website has been established called “Berks Cares”. We are inviting the residents of Berks County to simply sponsor Promise Packs. A Promise Pack is a backpack filled with some basic family supplies and activities for children. It’s only $12.00 to sponsor a pack. Promise Packs are a symbol of hope for people that have been forced from their homes into another country who really does not want them.

You can make a difference! Simply go to the website below and sponsor 1 or 2 or 12 or 50 or however many you are led to purchase.  We are collecting donations through July. At the end of July, each person who sponsored a backpack will be invited to a big packing party to put them together and get them ready to ship. Yes, Berks County, from across the globe can make an impact!
