Sponsors needed for Holiday Party for the Children of the Asylum seekers of Canton Zug

Community Links was created in 2013 as a formal association to help coordinate the projects and fundraising of a group of expat families, who came together 8 years ago to see how they could make a direct positive impact and give back to  the community.  This association has no political or religious ties or affiliation.

Since 2009, an Annual Holiday Party for the Children of the Asylum Seekers of Canton Zug is organised by volunteers from the international community, and each year around 100 children and their parents are hosted for an evening of music, games and gifts.

This event is supported by cash donations mainly from individuals.  The donations received primarily go toward the purchasing of the gifts.  Our goal is to collect 50 CHF per child enabling us to give each child a bag filled with toys, school materials and toiletry items.  Local vendors have donated the food and drinks for the party.  The 8th Graders of the International School of Zug and Luzern organize the games for the children, based on their community service project.  All the rest is the work of the many volunteers who donate their services and time.

This year the party will take place on the 4th of December at the Guthirt Church Hall in Zug.

As Asylum Seekers, these children and their families obtain shelter from the authorities.  They receive a very small amount of money to live on. Most of the parents are not allowed to work and their situation may last between 2 to 6 years before knowing if they will get a refugee status or not.

Your donation can seriously bring a lasting smile to the faces of these children.

If you would like to help us, please make your payment to our bank account:

Your generosity will make a difference and your donation, big or small, will be gladly received.

Thanking you in advance,

The Community Links Committee
