The International Rescue Committee is a non-profit organization founded in 1933.

IRC was founded at the request of Albert Einstein and offers lifesaving care, life-changing assistance to refugees forced to flee from war or disaster.

The IRC now has a presence in over 40 countries and in 22 U.S. cities. The goal of the organization is to restore safety, dignity and hope to individuals who were uprooted from their homes.

The Arizona Team spent two weeks gathering clothes for the charity. With the entire team working together, Az was able to gather several bags of gently used clothes for the International Rescue Committee.

“We are constantly looking for new ways to contribute in the community. It is exciting to be able to do something so simple as collecting clothes and know we are making an impact. I am proud to be a part of a team that values philanthropy as much as The Arizona Team does,” explains an employee of Az.

The Arizona Team has also volunteered with Autism Speaks, The Fisher House, Assistance League of Diablo Valley, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Oxfam America, and Tuesday’s Children. The company expects to expand to new locations this year and says they will continue to volunteer as they expand.
