George Capaccio - Storyteller
George Capaccio, Arlington resident and member of Arlington/Lexington UJP,
began the Iraq Family Relief Fund in 1998 shortly after his fourth trip to
Iraq to witness the effects of US-enforced economic sanctions. In the course
of theses visits, George formed close ties with a group of families in
Baghdad. The Iraq Family Relief Fund is a person-to-person effort to help
these families afford such basics as food, clothing, and medicines.
George relies entirely on donations. Arlington/Lexington UJP is sponsoring
this community event to assist George with this humanitarian relief effort.
Contributions go directly to the families and are not tax-deductible.
Sponsored by Arlington/Lexington United for Justice with Peace
