GAiN donations requested
Since the war began in Ukraine, St George’s has been responding to the humanitarian crisis by joining GAiN’s collection campaigns. St George’s feels privileged to be able to bring the love of Jesus in a practical way to the lives of people who are in dire need, and we want to continue making it possible with you.
The next GAiN campaign focuses on Turkey. Following the earthquake in southeast Turkey near the Syrian border earlier this year, GAiN took a reconnaissance trip to determine needs there, and now requests donations.
The current GAiN campaign runs 3rd-24th September, after which time donations will be picked up and taken to the warehouse the week of 25th Sept in preparation for distribution in Turkey.
Here’s what they need:
- Non-perishable food items such as lentils, garbanzos and other legumes
- Nappies/diapers in sizes 2-6 as well as adult
- Sanitary pads (NOT tampons or salvaslips)
You can participate by:
- Bringing the above requested items to St George’s church until Sunday 24th Sept.
- Making a monetary donation via this link: Emergencia Turquía – GAiN 2023
We are asking that you also prayerfully consider contributing to GAiN’s disaster response DART Fund on a regular basis by going to their webpage and clicking on the black button HACER DONATIVO. It would help to make your giving regular (monthly, quarterly, twice a year, etc), so care can continue in areas where there is great need and where GAiN is working to make a difference.
Thanks to everyone for your continued support and collaboration!
