Over the past months, the PPUMC community has been incredibly generous in helping provide support to Afghan refugee families making their way to a new home in Minnesota. (See our previous post about this service project here.) As the re-settlement efforts continue throughout February, we will be collecting a variety of household items, specifically kitchen and cleaning/laundry supplies, as well as accepting monetary donations to be delivered to the Minnesota Council of Churches Refugee Services for final distribution.
There are three options for donating:
1. A monetary donation through our website. click the “Donate” button in the top right corner of this page, or click here.
2. Collect and drop off supplies at the PPUMC front door foyer on Saturdays and Sundays throughout February. [You can also drop off your supplies on the front porch at the home of Ginia Klamecki.]
3. Provide a gift cards from one oft the following shopping locations: Target, Walmart and Cub Foods. [Mail your gift cards directly to the church office.]
For a full list of household items needed, please see this Amazon Wishlist or our Weekly Announcements. Thank you for your generosity and hospitality as we reach out in love and service to others. If you have questions, please contact Ginia at (612) 618-1908.
