My favorite quote says that "for it is in giving that we receive" and this perfectly describes my experience volunteering at CAIR Coalition. CAIR Coalition fights diligently for children who are escaping violence in their home countries. CAIR Coalition vigorously defends the rights of fathers and mothers who are seeking to provide a brighter future for their family. In many cases, CAIR Coalition is the only hope for these detained immigrant children, men and women. CAIR gives so much to the community and being a tiny part of their great work makes me receive so much more. That is why I love volunteering at CAIR Coalition.
