January Charity Highlight: Houston Welcomes Refugees

Each month, a Zuma Team member chooses a charity to highlight and add to our donations checkout page. For January, our very own Marie Winker chose Houston Welcomes Refugees. There are an average of 2,662 refugee resettlements in Houston each year, and these refugees step into a completely unfamiliar environment. Houston Welcomes Refugees organizes programs such as Welcome Teams and Welcome Kits to serve those in need. 

 From Marie: “Not only do I love this organization because their work is impactful, but I also have seen friends volunteer and welcome refugees and it be a life changing experience for them. As much as we hear about the refugee crisis in the news, putting real faces to names has allowed them to grow more empathetic and passionate towards others.”

In the month of December, 91 Zuma customers donated to our seven main charities through our donations checkout page. By rounding up their order totals, they were able to donate $45.59 in total! Thank you all so much for contributing to these groups and doing good work!
