Furnishing a Pantry for Afghan Refugee Family

We thank all who have contributed items to help furnish an apartment for a newly arriving Afghan family! Marvelously all the myriad slots on our furnishings donations list have been filled!  Please be patient if you have not yet received a call regarding your promised furniture donation. We are working on that now. Should you need to have the furniture removed sooner, please call or email Pastor Ed ([email protected]). 
We are now inviting your assistance to fill the shelves of their food pantry. In choosing what to provide, please consider the basic needs of your own pantry. We are still anticipating a family of four. Please do not include any products containing pork among your donations.
Gift cards for Aldi, Giant and Safeway are very welcome. You may place in a “Refugees” marked envelope in the offering plate, or mail them to the Refugee Task Force at the church address.
Place your contributions in the designated boxes in the foyer. They will be regularly be moved to our storage area downstairs. Items duplicated will either be save for our next apartment (should we choose to repeat this project) or donated to Catonsville Emergency Assistance.
We hope to receive information soon that will enable us to gather clothing for the specific family coming to this apartment. Please watch for further updates.
For questions about the signup, please email Kelly ([email protected]).  For questions about the Refugee Task Force, please email Pastor Ed ([email protected]). 
We need and welcome your willingness to contribute and ask that you please keep our Afghan sisters and brothers in your prayers.  We are grateful for your generosity.
