Sanctuary Team Honduran lunch fundraiser – Aug. 11, 2019

UUCC joined Kristine Smith and her family in April to help sponsor (host) Honduran asylum seeker Edler and his family. The asylum process is a very lengthy and expensive journey. Attorney fees and other related costs will be thousands of dollars, so the team will be holding periodic fundraisers.

Please mark your calendars for our Sanctuary Team‘s next after-church lunch fundraiser featuring Honduran food and tamales on Aug. 11. You will have a chance to meet both the asylum seekers and the host family and learn more about the situation in Honduras and in our own country regarding immigrants and refugees.

For more information or to get involved, please email either one of the Sanctuary Team co-chairs, Rev. Dottie Mathews or Allie Gassmann.
