Afghanistan Refugee Community Support Project & 5K
Oct 28, 2021
It is important to us at CAC Specialty and Cobbs Allen to give back to our communities in times of need. In response to the earlier events in Afghanistan, we hosted a charitable drive and 5K to support refugees seeking asylum in the US, specifically in Denver.
CAC Specialty and Cobbs Allen employees across all of our US offices were encouraged to donate items such as diapers, toiletries and school supplies for the Masjid Ikhals, a local mosque in Denver. The mosque has strong Afghanistan connections, and many refugees went to the mosque for shelter.
In addition, employees participated in a 5K walk on September 10th to raise funds to purchase additional supplies. Many employees participated in the walk together wearing CAC Cares and Cobbs Gives Back t-shirts. We are proud of our CAC Specialty and Cobbs Allen teams for their efforts, and we strive to continue supporting those in need.
