Refugee Sponsorship –
If you would like to support the Diocese of Niagara 140th Anniversary Campaign, envelopes are available on the greeter’s table. Also, below is a template of a letter you may wish to use to solicit support from people around you- friends, family, colleagues
Dear Friends and Family,
As you know, the global refugee crisis is at historical proportions. My church, Church of the Incarnation, is stepping up and has made an application to sponsor a refugee family and then assist them in getting re-settled somewhere here in southern Ontario. We need to fund raise approximately $25,000 to privately sponsor a family or 4-5 people and to date, without much effort we have raised about $21,000. This application is not associated with the 25,000 refugees that the Federal Government has committed to bringing in. We expect our application to take about 12 to 16 months. We will certainly keep you informed as we move through this process.
If you have ever wondered how you personally can help a refugee family that is in need of a home, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to my church, Church of the Incarnation. Every little bit helps! I will be collecting cheques made out to “Church of the Incarnation” between now and February 14, 2016. Please write, “Refugee Fund” in the notes section of your cheque.
Please contact me if you need any more information.
Thank you for your consideration and support.
