Neighbors helping Neighbors: Adopt a Family from the International Institute Through December 16


neighbors-helping-neighborsNeighbors helping Neighbors: Adopt a Family from the International Institute Through December 18

PUCC is partnering with Shaare Emeth to help two refugee families feel welcome and prepare for their first Missouri winter. 

 

When refugee families arrive in St. Louis, the International Institute provides basic household items, furniture, and bus passes using a small government allocation received on the individual’s behalf. However, families’ initial apartments are quite sparse and budgets are tiny so the Institute looks to the community for additional help. In addition to winter accessories, blankets, art and school supplies and easy books (to learn English), the families need monetary assistance to pay for their apartment and utilities.

 

Let’s show these refugee families the generosity and love of our community —any help will be greatly appreciated. Visit the following website for the list of needs and to sign up to help: www.sestl.org/neighbors
