Refugee and Immigrant Support Services of Emmaus (RISSE) is located in our Pine Hills neighborhood on West Lawrence Street at the former Emmaus United Methodist Church. RISSE helps refugees and immigrants build sustainable lives in our area.
In June, the Capital Region welcomed over 200 asylum-seekers. RISSE is working to with a coalition of community partners to address the needs of these people.
Let’s help them out by bringing in items the asylum-seekers need. There is a marked basket for RISSE at the entrance to Carmichael Hall.
Here are the items that RISSE is requesting:
Electrolytes (Gatorade or Powerade)
Women’s hygiene products
