Asbury, Lynnewood and San Ramon Valley UMC have formed a task force to sponsor resettlement of refugee families. We anticipate the arrival of our first family after May 1st. We are teaming with Catholic Charities on this new ministry.
We will help with the following: housing, home furnishings, stocking food pantry, clothing, school enrollment, job search, English language tutoring, transportation, medical, dental, mentoring and socialization.
At present, we are fundraising and soliciting volunteers to help. If you would like to help financially, give to Asbury UMC, noting “Refugees” on your donation. If you would like to know more about giving of your time, contact Steve Elliott for more information.
