Rep. Stewart launches refugee back to school drive

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) launched a school supply drive to collect supplies to help refugee children living in Utah.

The drive, “Reaching Out to Refugees: Back to School Drive”, will run through August 11, 2017. Supplies can be mailed or dropped off to Stewart’s Salt Lake and St. George Offices.

“There are around 25,000 refugee youth living in Utah,” Stewart said. “Many of them have had little to no education. As a father of six, I know how hard it was to get my kids ready for school each year. I can only imagine how hard it is for refugee families. That’s why I’m hosting a school supply drive, to help refugees get a good start in Utah’s schools.”
