Refugee Update

Refugee Update – The Portage & Area Refugee Coalition is planning to sponsor at least two refugee families from Syria.  Over $40,000 has already been donated toward this project.  Task groups have been set up to organize the various facets involved in sponsoring refugees, such as housing, furniture, clothing, transportation, language, tutoring, access to community services, etc.  Volunteers are being sought to assist with these various responsibilities.  A sign-up sheet has been set out at the back of the sanctuary for those interested in volunteering.  A few brochures have been set out at the back as well.  Financial donations can be made through either St. Mary’s Anglican Church or Trinity United Church.  For further information, visit the website www.portagerefugees.ca.  See also the flyers posted on the bulletin board downstairs.
