City of Refuge, a local non-profit that assists refugees with establishing a new life upon relocating, was excited and so very thankful when members of the Mid-Missouri Business Network BNI chapter pooled together their own money and donated 25lb bags of Jasmine Rice for refugee families.

Just as cold storms were settling in and the rice supply was completely gone- with this action they were able to completely replenish their stockpile in their basic needs closet just in time for families coming in for assistance this morning. Rice is the staple food for most of the refugees they assist and 25lb bags of rice can help feed a family for over a week. Thanks to all of the Mid-Missouri Business Network members for their generosity! If you’d like to donate rice or other basic necessities to help refugees locally.
