Support for Carolina Refugee Resettlement Agency
As part of our commitment to help local communities in need, Sangamithra Foundation selected Carolina Refugee Resettlement Agency (CRRA) as one of the deserving non-profits that would benefit from our support. It was a great opportunity for Sangamithra Foundation to partner with Deloitte US at their Consulting Connect event to help CRRA with donations of items that help set up refugees from around the world in new homes in Charlotte. The donations also included much needed office supplies to CRRA. Deloitte offered the opportunity to showcase Sangamithra’s accomplishments and spread awareness about the work we do through a presentation. There was also an activity session where the participants provided great ideas to help overcome some of our challenges. The collaboration with Deloitte was made possible by the joint effort of our dedicated volunteers Shabda Bhujad, Virag Rastogi, Anurag Rastogi and Sangamithra board members.
