WELCOMING NEW NEIGHBORS

Have you heard that Eau Claire is welcoming 75 refugees to our community? Yes. Some have arrived, some have not yet arrived.

 

A group of 12 people, from University Lutheran and Newman Parish combined, are preparing themselves to be an official Good Neighbor Team, eventually to be paired with an arriving refugee family. The team is committing to walk alongside these newcomers, becoming their initial supportive community for a six-month period, and being trained to do so in a well-educated and culturally sensitive manner. World Relief is the agency providing the foundational structure for this process, and their local representative, Jodi Jewell, is working closely with us each step of the way.

 

One of the Team’s first tasks will be to furnish the new family’s apartment: we’ll be asking all of YOU to help! After our initial live training sessions on April 23rd, and April 26th we were given the “Master Apartment Supply List” which contains a total of nearly 100 items in the following categories: Furniture, Kitchen, Linens, Cleaning, Personal Hygiene, Other. Some of these can be used, others must be new; we may be scouring thrift sales and places like Savers and Goodwill in the coming weeks.

 

Sara Bryan of ULC and Lou Hoeschen of Newman are the co-leaders of the Team, serving primarily in a communications role. Stay tuned for more information to come.
