The Transit Empowerment Fund is collecting donations between now and the end of the year to support transit access for Afghan refugees. Transportation is a critical element in assisting refugees to achieve sustainability as they integrate into the community. Between November 15th, 2021 and January 31st, 2022 the Transit Empowerment Fund will dedicate all donations on its website to supporting Afghan refugees as they integrate into our community. The funds will be distributed to local nonprofits to purchase bus passes or address other transit needs of Afghan refugees.
