Refugees

The Refugee Working Group – Update

We need your help again! While we wait for information on the Sweedan family and their possible arrival date, the Group is trying to assist some of the many Government Assisted Refugees (GARS) who have arrived in the city. We originally helped two families, with affiliation to Citadel High, and have been able to meet most of their needs in terms of furniture and other items. We are now trying to assist ten other families who are in real need of many essential items of furniture and household items. We would ask that you check your attics and basements once more and note any of the items that you can donate. See below a list of furniture that is needed for these Government Sponsored Refugee families:

  • 9 living room rugs
  • 5 end tables
  • 14 tall lamps
  • 1 couch
  • 6 love seats
  • 2 arm chairs
  • 2 large dining tables
  • 22 dining chairs
  • 1 china cabinet
  • 4 bunk beds
  • 1 crib
  • 10 dressers
  • 1 single bed
  • 13 large pots – lobster
  • 1 desk and chair
  • 4 vacuum cleaners
  • 2 twin strollers

If you are able to donate any of these items, please contact the church office by phone (902-422-5203) or e-mail: office@fbchalifax.ca.

Thank you again for all your support and your continue patience and assistance with our efforts.
