Jan. 25, 2017 — They have applied to sponsor some of the family of the newcomers in Wiarton and are waiting as the approval process moves slowly onward.
We are a group of five that has made application to bring two refugees to Owen Sound. We have particular skill, experiences and life-stages in our group that would allow us to meet the needs of refugees.
We have funds committed but would welcome other donations to help. We can not offer tax receipts though. We will be looking for gifts in-kind like furniture etc. that could be used by the refugees.
The core group consists of five couples and a single woman, all over fifty. We are open to others who would like to help us. For contact, please email Anne at firstname.lastname@example.org
