Proceeds raised from this event will go towards resettlement funds for refugee families. These funds help cover basic needs including groceries, household items, bus passes, rent and utility payments, and more. As our refugee families work toward self-sufficiency through gaining employment and financial stability, these funds cover the associated costs of rebuilding a new life here in America, creating a strong safety net for a successful start.

During his time with the Army, he also managed grants and projects to fund and develop programs in the Agricultural sector, focusing on irrigation drip systems in greenhouses.
