It’s been only three weeks since we met at my house for the initial refugee sponsorship info night and I am overjoyed to announce that WE’VE MET OUR $20K TARGET!!! It feels like Christmas came early. The Bruce Power gate collection today brought in over $9000.
Since the money is still coming in, and the serious fundraising ventures are only just getting started, now’s the time to announce that we’re going for a 2nd family, too! More details to follow at next Tuesday’s meeting.
I’ll be speaking at Saugeen Shores Town Council next Tuesday at 7:30 (just before our 8 pm meeting). Whoever wants to show up there to back our cause is more than welcome. It would be good for Council to see the public interest. Otherwise, I hope to see you back at the Port Elgin United Church by 8 p.m.
Thank you to everyone who’s pitching in to make this happen. I seriously can’t believe how fast it’s all happened… Goes to show what determination can accomplish.
