NuDay Syria Drive
Last spring, St. Stephen’s parishioners sent 40 bags of backpacks, school supplies and arts and crafts supplies to NuDay Syria’s two refugee camps! Last Sunday, we officially launched this year’s collection, to go through June 22nd.Tragically, the needs are even greater now as the brutal war continues. Syrian refugees who have survived the last seven years of bombing and air strikes have suffered greatly and lost almost everything from their former lives. It is safe to say that our donations will go a long way in providing much-needed outlets and distractions from the daily hardships for refugee mothers and children.What to give? Lists of suggested donations for the camps are at the back of the church and outside the parish hall offices. Regarding condition: backpacks can be either new or “gently used”. All consumable supplies should be new.Where to bring them? Please leave your donations inside the parish hall accessed through the Church door in the courtyard during office hours: M-Th, 9am-3pm. If locked, ring the bell at the Office door, also in the courtyard.
