Asylee Families Christmas Fundraiser

I need your help with helping out two asylee families who have sought shelter here in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  I am sponsoring two families with children who hope to have a better, safer life here in America. They have been through a lot, and came here with nothing, so let us make America kind again, and help give a hand up, even in the smallest amount, and not think of it as a hand out. We are only as strong and united as our weakest link.  Give the gift of empathy.  Give the gift of being part of lightening the very heavy burden on families struggling during the holiday season, during a pandemic. Their appreciation is boundless.  

Some of the things your donations will help buy for the families grocery store gift cards, winter clothes, coats, shoes, and holiday gifts. Below are the descriptions of the 2 families I, (hopefully we, with your help) are sponsoring.  I will be using monetary donations to buy any items not donated to me for them, and put rest on grocery gift cards to be split by both families.

Thank you in advance. Sending you well wishes, good luck, and hugs.
