Founded in 2016, the Asylum Seeker Assistance Project is the first and only nonprofit dedicated to serving the estimated 25,000 asylum seekers living in the greater D.C. area. These men, women, and children come to the United States because of circumstance—not choice. ASAP’s mission is to support their safety, stability, and economic security through a variety of services such as a job readiness training program, “Know Your Rights” workshops, and connections to volunteers in the local community.
For each almond creme cupcake (vanilla cake topped with almond frosting + toasted almonds) sold this month at Sticky Fingers, we’ll donate $1 to support ASAP. Eat cupcakes for charity!
