Local Group Seeks Donations To Support Refugee Family

A group in Golden is seeking more financial support in their hopes to settle a refugee family locally.

'Golden Opportunities for Refugees' has spent the past few months building support for the initiative.

Spokesperson Carl Trinkwon has details on their hopes "We're trying to bring one family in. The family consists of a man and woman, and two children - a boy and girl."

He says that so far they have reached about a quarter of their monetary goal "Our goal is to reach $40,000. We've raised over $10,000 so far."

Trinkwon says the hope is to have that money raised by the end of this Summer.

Anyone seeking details about fundraising events or how they can make a donation can look up Golden Opportunities for Refugees on Facebook, or visit this link.
