Fund Drive to Support Afghan Refugees in Vermont in Honor of Martha Manheim

Please Contribute to Our Fund Drive to Support Afghan Refugees in Vermont in Honor of Martha Manheim  

Governor Phil Scott announced last week that the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI) was approved by the US Department of State to welcome up to 100 Afghans in Vermont in the weeks ahead. USCRI Vermont will work closely with the State, as well as with schools, employers, landlords, and health and social service programs, to meet the needs of arriving Afghans and of the community. Donations will be used to supply these refugees with basic items like furniture, household goods and food.

The Mission Committee of the United Church of Strafford would like to support this in honor of Martha Manheim who has urged us to undertake this effort. Our goal is to raise $1000 to help the 100 Afghan refugees who will re-settle in Vermont. We welcome your donations of any amount. You may mail a check made out to the United Church of Strafford to Danette Harris, PO Box 143, South Strafford, VT 05070 or donate online. Please indicate that your gift is for the refugees. We will continue to gather contributions until we have met our goal.

Thank you!  The Mission Committee:
Cameron Speth

Danette Harris, Chair
