Miry’s List crowdsources donated supplies for refugee families that help them rebuild their lives. It began in 2016, when Miry Whitehill-Ben Atar met a family of refugees from Syria and learned not only of the hardships they endured in their war-torn home countries but also the challenges of starting over in a new country. She discovered many refugees don’t even have basic childcare needs for their young children or household supplies. Miry was so impacted that she took to her own Facebook page and asked her friends to donate items for the children. Like her, many of her friends wanted to help and quickly got involved by making donations. Soon she was posting for other families that were also in great need. Thanks to the great response of friendly neighbors and friends, Miry found everything from furniture to diapers for the families. This is how Miry’s List was born.
In 2017, NorthStar Moving began it’s partnership with Miry’s List, providing pickups and deliveries of donations for Syrian and Afghan Refugees.
In 2019, Miry’s List honored NorthStar Moving Co-Founder Laura McHolm with their Ana Huna “Least We Can Do” Award during their 2019 World Refugees Day Awards.
