The volunteers of Lake County Resettlement Group are gathering gifts for our family and close friends. The intent is to provide needed supplies and something fun and educational at Christmas. This request is going out to participating congregations and civic groups.
If you want to help the refugee family, it would be greatly appreciated. The best way for our congregation is a cash gift to our church, earmarked in the memo line “Lake County Resettlement Group.” This will be available in a fund to meet emerging needs such as bus tickets for Esube who has just landed a job in Wisconsin, and Ventra (public transit) cards for the kids and their friends who attend After School programs. We also need to help a little longer with the rent, since RefugeeOne does not do that after the first year, and Salima can’t work yet due baby Jeanette.
