Memory Service – Changed to December 9

Single Mom, 3 Children – Refugees

Mother and three children, refugees from Egypt, recently had to sell their furnishings to pay for food and necessities.

We would like to help them by providing:

  • two queen size bed frames and one twin bed frame. (They were able to keep their mattresses)
  • a TV (we need a flat screen because their one bedroom apartment is too small to allow for the old style TV)
  • a computer or laptop to support them with their educational courses.
