We are so excited that a Congolese refugee family is on their way to Fort Worth to be our new neighbors! They will arrive on Friday May 7th. We need your help to welcome them. Here are 4 ways you can help:
1) Help purchase or donate items for their new home
You can purchase on our Amazon Wish List: http://bit.ly/RidgleaWelcomes
Have good used items from this list to donate? Let Allison know so we can mark it off and bring it to the church
All items must be to Ridglea by Wednesday May 5th
2) Donate for groceries
We want to stock their kitchen with comfort food that tastes like home.
Donate money at www.shelbygiving.com/Ridglea
and put Refugees in the comments. We will use that money to buy groceries recommended by Refugee Services of Texas.
3) Welcome them at the airport
Their plane get's into DFW on Friday May 7th at 1 PM. We want them to know, as soon as they arrive, how excited we are that they are our new neighbors. If you want to wave welcome signs and be the first friendly American faces they meet, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Folks from our partners at Refugee Services of Texas will be there too!
4) Apartment set up
Sometime on Thursday May 6th we will set up their new apartment so they can walk into a place that feels like home. If you want to help make beds, stock the refrigerator, and add decorative touches email email@example.com
