The Philadelphia Inquirer reports on a nonprofit created by two teenagers, Daniel Adibi and Advaith Kollipara, who created a nonprofit to provide school supplies to refugees. They partnered with NSC to distribute the supplies they collected.

“When a refugee arrives, being connected to their school community is really important for proper integration and resettlement,” said Jackie McCann, volunteer coordinator with NSC. “We want to make sure that students are starting the school year off right with the proper resources and agency and choice in small things like their backpacks or notebooks. So Refugee School Supplies has been a really great partnership in making sure that can happen for our clients.”
