ebenezer refugee support

items needed

The items listed are needed by one or more refugee families in the  Edgewater/Rogers Park area.  After pledging to provide an item, call Norm Dynneson at 773-218-8729 to arrange for pick-up or delivery. Cash donations should be made to Ebenezer Lutheran Church with Refugee Fund as a notation and sent to Ebenezer at 1650 West Foster. Chicago 60640.  As families find better housing, there will be space for different furniture. Please check back every month or two.  Thank you.
