New Refugee Family to Settle in King City

We are excited to share the good news that All Saints has is sponsoring a new refugee family this year. We are listed as a “Parish of Record,” and will work alongside King for Refugees, a local non-profit group that All Saints has worked with before, and the Diocesan group AURA (Anglican United Refugee Association) who are both responsible for the administration, funding and distribution of sponsorship funds.

The family is scheduled to arrive in King on Tuesday Nov 27.  We hope to create opportunities for our parish to meet and engage with this family over the coming months. There are 6 members in this extended family, ranging in age from 8 to 50. Although arriving from Ghana, they are citizens of Liberia. Please keep this family in your prayers as they prepare to make the long journey to a new country

Donations needed – A house has been found for this new family on Keele Street, here in King City. They will particularly require the following items in their new home: sheets and pillows, warm bedding, bath towels, a set of pots including a large soup pot, frying pans. To arrange for pickup of these or any donations you wish to make, please email king4refugees@gmail.com. Let’s help them to feel at home in our community!
