NorthStar Moving Co-Founder Laura McHolm Receives 2019 World Refugee Day Award

Miry’s List, a nonprofit organization serving over 300 families who have recently resettled in America as refugees from countries such as Syria, Afghanistan, Iran and Iraq, honors NorthStar Moving® Co-Founder Laura McHolm with their 2019 World Refugees Day Award. 

“Each year on June 20th, World Refugee Day honors those who are and have experienced migration and resettlement. On this World Refugee Day, we are honoring those ‘sheroes’ that have gone above and beyond to support our organization and the families forced to flee, resettling here in the United States,” said Miry’s List Founder & Executive Director Miry Whitehill. “We are awarding Ms. McHolm and her entire team at NorthStar Moving as they have been an integral part in settling these families into their new homes in this country. NorthStar Moving stores donated essential household items for us and then delivers them to the apartments of the resettling families. Items include: mattresses, furniture and kitchen appliances. Our families are able to watch their houses become homes, and the impact is transformative. Our new arrival refugee families feel welcome, safe and a sense of belonging. Ms. McHolm and NorthStar Moving are demonstrating to the entire country how private companies can make a tangible impact on families resettling here. It’s inspiring and deserves to be celebrated.”
