Previous fund name: Futbol con Corazón (Box Belong + LatinX + Box.org) Fund
Last weekend we celebrated the 2018 World Cup with a special soccer tournament in support of unaccompanied minors – children who bravely left their families and fled their countries to escape persecution, abandonment, exploitation, serious deprivation, and/or violence. 20+ Boxers and their families represented our company by playing soccer with the children, volunteering and raising funds that go directly to free legal services and programatic costs.
The event was hosted by Catholic Charities Refugee & Immigrant Services Program was sponsored by Box ERGs Belong & LatinX, in partnership with Box.org.
We're rallying Boxers and friends to raise funds to respond to the dramatic increase in demand for affordable legal assistance and wraparound services for unaccompanied minors.
Jointly, we've raised $4,300. As Boxers we can do more. The events at the southern US border within the past 48 hours have escalated the need for legal services, so we are setting a new goal of $10K+.
