United Church Supports Afghan Refugee Resettlement in Santa Fe
More refugees will arrive at the end of the month. Rentals are a huge need! If you know someone who has a rental, please contact Avril Ekstrand: 505-490- 8164. Monetary donations welcome (memo: Afghan).
We coordinated a furniture drive for the Afghan Refugees arriving in Santa Fe. The congregation donated furniture and household items, which are in storage and are being distributed as people arrive and find permanent housing. Members also have donated a total of $4,090. Thank you! Avril Ekstrand, chair.
Kits For Ukraine
United children, youth, and adults continue to assemble hygiene kits for Church World Service to send to refugee camps in countries around Ukraine and also incountry. You’re invited to support that effort through monetary donations and/or supplies. To date, we have received over $18,000 in donations. Volunteers to help assemble or work with children and youth are also needed. Donations from people beyond United Church of Santa Fe are also welcome, so please pass the word to friends, co-workers, neighbors, and family. Thank you. (Talitha Arnold, Karen Wilbanks)
