Rescue organization's refugees give thanks

In November, refugees from Iraq, Iran, Uganda, Egypt and Eritrea celebrated Thanksgiving at the International Rescue Committee’s Glendale location.

It was the second annual Thanksgiving celebration that the International Rescue Committee has hosted. Many people enjoyed roast turkey and traditional fixings.

The International Rescue Committee works in more than 40 countries in areas of conflict or war to provide people with clean water, health care, shelter and sanitation.

The IRC annually helps to resettle thousands of refugees in 22 cities across the nation.
