Our St. John-St. Paul Collaborative POWIR committee is overjoyed to announce that in the coming weeks we will be welcoming a refugee family from Afghanistan. Our housing committee has secured an apartment in the Newton/Brookline area for the family. 

Targeted donations for their apartment needs are being solicited in both churches this weekend – look for the envelopes on the clotheslines at the main entrances. Drop off for these specific items will be in Powers Hall at St. John’s from Tuesday, October 26 through Thursday, October 28. 

We are in great need of financial contributions as well! We ask you to prayerfully consider assisting this family in their financial resettlement needs via our online donation platform which can be accessed at this link: SJSPPOWIR. Financial contributions will be used to assist with the rent, food, clothing, health care and education needs of the family. 

This is your opportunity to transform the lives of a family who have been through unfathomable upheaval and trauma. Every contribution is a statement of extraordinary Christ-like compassion.
