Donations in kind are one way to constrain monetary costs of refugee sponsorship. The Westshore Refugee Sponsorship Group is still in an early phase, but obtained a list from Starfish Refugee that had been shared on the Vancouver Island Refugee Sponsorship site.
We’re now working on our own list. It’s a work-in-progress that can be viewed here.
Thank you to Katherine Engqvist and the Goldstream Gazette for coverage of the Westshore Refugee Sponsorship Group in an online article of March 9, pharmacy 2016:
Scoop up a copy of Monday’s Goldstream Gazette to read about the Westshore Refugee Sponsorship Group on about page 5 or 6. If you have a spare copy, please bring it to the Information Night on Thursday evening – 7 pm at the Westside Bible Church, 3307 Wishart Road in Colwood – as we don’t have a copy in our household.
Thanks to the Gazette for its interest in the WRSG.
Information about the WRSG is being disseminated via Westshore churches today, including Bill and Hilary making an announcement at the Church of the Advent. Hilary and Linda met last Thursday with the Acting Editor of the Goldstream Gazette, and an article should be published on Wednesday, March 9th.
Crowded bulletin boards often don’t have space for a full-size poster. We’ve created a reformatted version to print two handbills on each sheet of letter-sized paper. See the Home page, or use this:
Handbill to Print 2 on 8.5 X 11
Thanks to Laurie Shumanski for creating our Information Night poster. On both the Home and Photos pages, ask there are now links that will display the PDF in a new tab, which will enable you to save the file for printing or sharing.
This link does the same thing:
The WRSG Committee normally meets on Thursday evenings. Please keep that schedule in mind to facilitate communications and timely decisions or action. However, general information can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, and website issues can be identified to email@example.com at any time.
This week, we meet on March 3rd at Hilary and Lawrence’s.
