The local volunteers organized online ordering of IRC-requested items (such as pans, pots, utensils and other kitchen items), stored the shipments after delivery, and sorted and assembled the care packages.

In all, 140 "Community of Character" shopping bags were put together in less than three weeks and sent to the IRC for distribution to families in need.

Americans didn't approve of bringing culturally incompatible Third Worlders into our home. America is not a flophouse for all the world's unfortunates. We cannot continue to operate like it is. This is a home - for Americans. Not for the world.
