Refugee Family Update
Our Refugee Assistance Committee is working with a family from Afghanistan: Maliha and her 9 children. This spring, the younger children are participating in a soccer program and studying hard at school.
We are looking for a soccer ball (size 3), party dresses for the girls (size 5 & 6), and a school backpack for a middle school aged boy. Also, we would like to assist single mom, Maliha to spruce up her home with a fresh coat of paint indoors. If you would like to help in any way, contact Beth.
