Refugee Response Event Recap

July 18, 2016 0 Share

On Wednesday evening, St. Andrew’s revealed God’s goodness by packing Kitchen and Baby kits for newly-arrived refugee families. Over 180 people gathered to learn about the refugee experience, color welcome letters and prepare kits that will help ease the transition for families as they arrive in the United States.
