F.R.E.E. began in 2010 by providing parochial school tuition, busing, and school lunches for refugee children in an environment where they can get the individual attention they require. A parochial school educational environment shields them from the gang activity, bullying, and violence present in the local public school system. Subsequently, we became aware of the great physical and emotional needs in their community as well. F.R.E.E. strives to meet these needs by soliciting and distributing donations of money, food, services, and gently-used goods (including clothing, furniture, bedding, shoes, toys, bicycles, baby supplies and common household items). F.R.E.E. also provides fun learning activities in the Clarkston community to increase the children’s knowledge of the society in which they now live. Importantly, F.R.E.E. also provides transport to/from medical and legal appointments in urgent situations. (F.R.E.E.) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization (EIN #47-1667780).
