Bring Joy & Hope to Families in Immigration Detention Through LIRS Hope for the Holidays
The holidays should be a magical, wondrous time, but this year in America, hundreds of children and families will be spending the holiday behind bars — because they crossed the United States border seeking protection.
You can bring joy and hope to families in immigration detention, and to children who crossed our borders alone, by joining LIRS’s Hope for the Holidays annual campaign to send cards and gifts to families impacted by immigration detention. With your help, LIRS will ensure that every family in immigration detention receives a Christmas gift and thousands of other immigrants awaiting safety and protection in the United States receives Christmas cards. Together we can remind our brothers and sisters that they are not alone this holiday season.
