Donation request for refugees from the Yale Park Complex
Donations will be delivered November 9, 2018
Thank you so much to all of you who donated, helped sort, and helped deliver the items for our Yale Park refugee family. We have done a lot so far but there is still more we can do! We are still in need of some more items to complete our donation list.
Click here to sign up for item(s) you are able to donate. The access code is 613. Donations can be dropped off at Beth El.
If you would like to contribute money to our Welcoming the Stranger fund so we can buy some of these items, that would be wonderful. Even $10-20 added up will help. Call the Beth El office directly to donate/pledge money at 402-492-8550.
If anyone is able to help deliver more items on Sunday, November 18, especially if you have a truck, van, or large vehicle, please contact Tamar Yellin.
Who are the Yale Park Complex Refugees?
An estimated 500 people were displaced after an inspection by the city shut down the Yale Park apartment complex. These residents are refugees from Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, who fled the country’s civil war violence.
