Help Chemainus Help Syrian Refugees
Monday, Nov 30, 7pm
Chemainus United Church, 9814 Willow St (next door to us)
It takes a community to help a family, so let’s show what the Chemainus community can do! Bring your ideas for how you, your friends, business, group, church, or family can help. Anyone is welcome at this meeting — not just representatives of organizations.
At the meeting, we will be asking for commitments for participation. For example, your group might commit to raising a certain amount of money, or volunteer to drive to pick up furniture or offer some other gift we don’t know we need yet. We will try to answer as many questions as possible and provide an outline for how this work will happen together.
If you are unable to attend, contact us and we will connect you with John Wray, who is leading the committee to sponsor a Syrian refugee family in Chemainus.
