Christmas for the Inn at St. Paul Refugees

In this season of giving, so many people have asked if there is anything that they can do for or give to the Gebremariam/Desta family as they prepare to celebrate their first Christmas in the United States.  Learn how you can give.
Many of their physical needs have been met already. While there will no doubt be things they need that will be identified in the coming months, the family now has shelter, clothing, and food.
One thing they do need is help integrating into our community. There is so much that our city has that are literally foreign to them. As you think about how you want to help them, will you consider introducing the family to one of these places or experiences?
We have brainstormed some ideas and included them in a signupgenius. If you would like to participate, we invite you to sign up with one or two other families and invite the Gebremariam/Destas to join you. Some of these ideas have little or no cost others would be more expensive. In any case, the host families would need to cover the expense and provide transportation for them.
If you would prefer to make a financial donation to support the family, please consider making the contribution through St. Paul Community United Methodist Church. You can give online or you can send a check with “refugee family” in the memo line to 8221 Miami, Madeira, OH 45243.
