The Allenby Community Welcomes Refugees

The holidays are behind us and the ACWR network is growing, re-energized and ready to launch the 2016 fundraising campaign with renewed commitment.

ACWR raised close to $20,000.00 over the month of December. This was only possible because of the compassion of people in this community both young and old.

As fantastic as that is, there is still much to do. ACWR’s ultimate goal is $40,000.00. At that magic number, working in cooperation with the Sponsorship Agreement Holder, Rosedale United Church, the process of pairing the volunteer group with a Syrian family begins. Please help ACWR reach that goal by February 1, 2016.

Visit the ACWR website to donate online. Be sure to subscribe to the mailing list to receive regular updates, fundraising news and volunteer opportunities.

Thank you to the Allenby community. ACWR welcomes all of its new members and wishes everyone a happy and peace-filled new year.
