Over the last month, PMC has collected a generous supply of relief and hygiene kits in response to the Syrian refugee crisis. These will be sent to Mennonite Central Committee to support their efforts, but PMCers continue to work to help those in need.
Led by Esther King and Milonica Stahl-Wert, we are sewing comforters to be sent to Syrian refugees. This is familiar work to some who have supported people in similar crises. but it is new to some of us. These comforters are a personal reminder to individuals that they are remembered during this awful time. Each blanket also serves very practical purposes, sometimes being used for warmth or as a mattress and also to cover walls of tents and temporary shelters.
Using donated material, Esther and Milonica have completed several tops already, but they still need help! They are working at Milonica’s home, and you can contact her to set up a time to sew together. Please consider helping if you have a free afternoon or evening!
