The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has donated $5 million worth of aid to the nine federal refugee resettlement agencies in the U.S., according to the Deseret News.
The donation comprises $1.2 million in cash and $3.8 million in commodities to be used during 2018, and it marks the second straight year the church has made such a donation.
Each of the nine organizations will receive a different amount. Episcopal Migration Ministries, for example, received $50,000 in cash and $200,000 of in-kind donations.
“The support from the LDS church has allowed Episcopal Migration Ministries to grant support projects for housing and health issues focused on homelessness prevention and intensive services for refugee cases with medical needs,” the organization said in a statement. “We are thankful for LDS church leadership in support of refugee resettlement.”
The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, meanwhile, received $40,000 in cash and $160,000post was originally published on this site
