We’ve just heard that the two families (they’re related) are soon joining us in Canada. They have their visas, and their travel plans are in the works. We’re excited but there’s lots to do!
We are still collecting furniture for the household. We have a registry at https://sokindregistry.org/registry/ErinRefugeeActionDonations that outlines needed items–new or gently used. Please note on the registry if you have one of the items for donation.
We’re still fundraising, as we are short of some funds for the sponsorship requirement. Please see our donations page for ways to donate. Donations $20 and over will receive a tax receipt. There’s now an option for online donations too!
The families will live in an apartment within a bungalow in Guelph. We chose this location as it will be easier during COVID-19. The families will be able to walk to services and stores, and know another family that will also be settling in Guelph. If you’d like to volunteer with us, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for your support! We couldn’t do this without you.
