Crofton Cares was proud to be a sponsor again this year to the 2023 REAP the Benefit event hosted by the Refugee Response. Many gathered to attend the event, work the event, make a donation, volunteer their time, and bring a silent auction item, all in an effort to support this incredible organization.
Founded in 2009, the Refugee Response (TRR) was formed to help incoming refugees adjust to life in Northeast Ohio. Through unique programs, they work to empower the growing newcomer population by providing opportunities for them to learn the skills they need to succeed in their new communities. Some of the programs they offer include youth, teen, and adult mentoring, extracurricular activities to explore hobbies, talents and athletics, urban farming, and multilingual content creation. The Refugee Response supports over 700 refugees each year, provides opportunities for hundreds of Clevelanders to mentor and volunteer, and supports over 25% of the annual budget from farm sales.
