Nativity has chosen Freedom House as one of our outreach opportunities. Their mission is to provide comprehensive support (housing, education and training, English as a Second Language (ESL), medical/psychological help, and legal aid) to asylum seekers. Freedom House may have as many as 35 to 50 refuges and refugees who need support for as long as six to eight months. While receiving a variety of grants for funding, more supplies are needed to provide the necessary help for these refugees, many who suffer from being persecuted, tortured or threatened with their lives. Nativity is committed to provide some of the needed supplies to Freedom House for the next year. The schedule for items we are donating is:
March: Paper Products
Paper Towels (prefer those with choise of sheet size)
September 2014: Personal Hygiene Items
Toothbrushes and Toothpaste
Shaving Cream and Razors
Bar Soap (No liquid soap, please).
Feminine Hygiene Pads (no tampons, please).
