Moving to a new town is unsettling enough; imagine how stressful it would be to move to a different country, leaving almost everything you own behind because you are afraid for your safety?
Catholic Social Services is seeking donations for their Refugee Resettlement Program. Refugees are people who come to the United States seeking freedom from persecution. They are admitted to the U.S. by the Department of State and sponsored by various non-profit organizations, such as Catholic Social Services. The goal is to make the refugee families feel welcome and to ease their transition into this country.
One of the needs this time of year is gift cards if a troop would like to host a drive. Other items that are always needed are:
Alarm clocks, blankets, pillows, tea pots, pots, pans, cleaning supplies, waste baskets, deodorant, shampoo.
If your troop is interested in this worthwhile cause, please contact Alyssa Mueller: firstname.lastname@example.org (251)432-2727.
