Dear NSMC family,
The Refugee co-sponsor team is moving as quickly as possible, and we hope you can move with us. If you possibly can, please come to an information meeting Monday, December 12, 7:00pm. We have invited Kim Snoddy, senior manager of co-sponsorships for RefugeeOne. Founded in 1982, RefugeeOne is an independent non-profit refugee resettlement agency in Chicago. With help from co-sponsors like us, they assist refugees to become independent, self-supporting community members as quickly as possible. Kim will explain various ways we can support a refugee family coming to Chicago.
We have picked the Friends’ meeting house in Lake Forest (101 W Old Elm Rd, Lake Forest, IL), so our Evanston sisters and brothers can attend more easily. We are also hoping that people from other churches or perhaps even civic groups can attend.
Please come, and bring a friend if possible. It’s important to get the information out.
