WHO ARE WE?

The Saugeen Shores Refugee Fund was launched in September 2015 by a group of residents of Port Elgin and Southampton, ON.

We are deeply concerned about the ongoing Syrian refugee crisis and have decided to take action by raising funds to sponsor a family to come to our community. Once we have raised the money, we could have a family here within 1 to 6 months.

The process is being facilitated by Mennonite Central Committee, a non-governmental organization with a long and well-respected history of refugee resettlement in North America.

If you have any questions or wish to get involved, please contact us at saugeen.refugeefund@gmail.com.

  1. The Sunday School children at Port Elgin United Church would like to make a $500 donation to your fund. To whom should the cheque be made out to?
