Thousands raised by UNA-SA for Syria

Thank you to everyone who donated items, helped at the rummage sale, or purchased items at our last rummage sale on May 10, 2014. Over $5,000 was raised in a single day for Syrian refugees.

A rummage sale in October 2013 raised $6,125 for UNICEF to provide shelter, food and clothing for Syrian refugees. Special thanks to all those who supported our efforts! -- from Joan Safier, UNA-SA Board 10/19/2013.
