We are humbled and gratified to announce that, through your generosity, the Carolina Peace Resource Center and Aiken Peace raised nearly $1,500 for Syrian Refugee Relief at benefits in Columbia (Thursday Feb 27th) and Aiken (Tuesday Feb 25th) proceeds going to the Syrian-American Medical Society, the Al Salam School, and the Maram Foundation. We will be able to cut checks for $500 to each of these worthy charities.  But it’s not too late to sweeten those checks and increase our impact: help make a real difference by donating.
