Request For Christmas Gifts

Associate Jackie Greenfield and the Grange Liturgical Community in Redding, CT are collecting Christmas gifts to send to Appalachia for the many homeless families and battered women with children who live at the shelter in Norton, VA and for the children who receive food from the food pantry.  They  would greatly appreciate donations of (new) gifts of infant onesies, diapers and wipes, basic toiletries such as soap, shampoo (no conditioner), deodorant, warm socks, etc., and, if possible Pack 'n' Plays. Pack 'n' Plays are foldable crib/playpens for new moms who have nothing for their babies, and when they are able to leave the shelter, they can take the Pack 'n' Play with them. Babies are safe in them for up to a year, so they are a true godsend.  If you wish to do this, please contact Jackie Greenfield at jkgree1@optonline.net, by November 30.

Encourage Canada to support Refugees

Every year at the beginning of November, the Canadian federal Cabinet sets the planned total number of incoming refugees and immigrants for the coming year. Our government is making these decisions now, and it’s important for citizens to communicate our perspectives. Many of us have experienced amazing blessings through our connections with refugees – we know that in the process of sponsorship, strangers become neighbours and cherished members of our communities. Let's join our voices with the Centre for Public Dialogue and Citizens for Public Justice and the Canadian Council of Refugees by urging our MP's to encourage generous settlement levels and continued government efforts to reduce wait times in the refugee sponsorship system. It's easy. Go to http://p2a.co/Ln7odB7 and fill out the form.
