Refugee families are coming into Worcester communities at the rate of 25 to 35 persons per month. Half of these are children. Ascentria Alliance is helping these families to settle, and although they are given some initial assistance, more help is needed. Donations of personal items, like toothbrushes, toothpaste, soaps, lotions, toilet paper, tissues, etc. are requested. At our meeting on March 5 Margaret Watson will be collecting any items you might like to donate and take them to the Ascentria staff. Thanks so much.
