St. Paul's Refuge for Refugees

WELCOME NEW FAMILY FROM ETHIOPIA

We are welcoming a new refugee family!  This is a family of six from Ethiopia.  They arrive September 26th (this is updated info!).  Please sign up below to help us as we welcome this family to our community.

In addition to the household items needed as shown below, we are also assembling a team to clean and outfit the apartment on Saturday 9/22.  If you would like to be a part of this effort, please sign up below.

Since 2016, St. Paul's R4R has supported families from Syria, Afghanistan, Somalia, and Myanmar.  Please consider making a monetary donation (see bottom of list below) to help us support another family this fall.

UPDATE: 

If you are donating items, you may bring them directly to the apartment on Saturday between 10 and 12 (email katiebricio13@gmail.com for address) or drop them off at church this week --clearly labeled "REFUGEE"-- in the narthex by the coat rack to the right of the doors to the sanctuary.

If you are helping clean the apartment, email [email protected] for the address and we will meet there Saturday at 10 am.

If you are helping Mike move items from Curry Center, please meet him at church at 10 am on Saturday.
