Updated with note from the IRC on May 12, 2016:
Grace Presbyterian Church,
On behalf of the staff and clients of the IRC in Wichita, we would like to extend our most heartfelt thank you to you for donating the household boxes. Each of the items in the boxes will be put into our clients’ apartments prior to their arrival. We can’t thank you enough for your thoughtfulness and we appreciate it so greatly.
The refugee support team also thanks you for your enthusiasm for this outreach. In addition to the 36 boxes provided, many members passed on furniture they were no longer using. And, an especially generous donor (a friend of a Grace member) funded an entire apartment. Watch for other opportunities as we continue to welcome our neighbors.
Thanks to all of you who have already donated items to help equip refugees’ apartments. Some of the boxes have been delivered to the International Rescue Committee and others are awaiting completion.
Several members have written generous checks and also given furniture that they no longer need. The International Rescue Committee is most appreciative of our efforts. We hope to complete this mission project in April, but of course donations are welcome any time.
