Refugee Update and Needs

It is almost ten years since Forest Grove Community Church sponsored the Fikak family as Eritrean refugees who were living in Sudan.  Approximately 5 years ago a group of us applied to sponsor their sister, brother-in-law and two children to come to Canada.  Two years ago we received a message from Immigration Canada leading us to believe that this family would be arriving imminently.  At that time an email was placed in the church email welcoming donations from church members to help settle the Osman family.  People were very generous with their donations of household items and we have been storing these household effects since that time.  A couple of weeks ago we received notification that the family will be arriving in Saskatoon next week.  There are still a few items that we need to furnish their apartment.

We are looking for the following items:

Turkey roaster
Single burner hot plate 
Laptop Computer
School supplies
Superstore gift cards
