Our Christmas Mission Focus
For Christmas 2015
SYRIAN REFUGEE CRISIS:TWO WAYS TO HELP!
1. For the month of December we will be gathering warm winter clothing. Coats/sweaters, snowsuits/snow-pants, toques, mitts/gloves, scarves and boots. All sizes - new or gently used. PLEASE ensure that gently used items are cleaned and in good repair.. i.e. zippers and all closures work. Blankets would be great too.
These items will go to SEW ON FIRE in Burlington for distribution.
2. ERDO CRISIS RESPONSE - If you would like to make a cash donation the Canadian Government is doing match funding until December 31st! Just mark your giving envelope 'For Syria'
These funds will go to help provide practical support to the over 3 million refugees who are living in camps in the neighbouring countries of Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq. Over 7 million are internally displaced within Syria.
PRAY with your family about what you might DO to help!
