NuDay Syria Drive
Here in New England, we are beginning to feel the first stirrings of Spring, but in NuDay Syria’s refugee camps in Syria and Turkey, winter is still fierce. Without the comfort of central heating, and warm shelters, children and their parents, eat, sleep, work, study, and play in the cold. The winter clothing and bedding St Stephen’s sends helps some of those families find relief and comfort from the constant cold and frequent snow and rain. More refugees arrive in the camps every day so our winter clothing and bedding donations continue to be a lifesaver.Please bring your donations to the doorway in the courtyard nearest the church. Once inside, they may be left in the alcove off the Narthex. The office is open Monday – Thursday, from 9am – 3pm. If the door is locked during these hours, please ring the office doorbell near the courtyard garden entranceThis collection continues until March 11. Thank you, St. Stephen’s for your generosity!
