Dear Editor,

The Fort St. James Syrian Refugee Committee wishes to thank our community for the tremendous ongoing support of our efforts to bring a Syrian refugee family to safety in Fort St. James.

We had the proceeds of a yard sale donated, loans of BBQ equipment for a concession at a soccer tournament, gifts of prizes for our raffle, yard sale items donated and many generous cash donations from individuals and organizations.

We are close to our initial goal of applying for a family and continue to work with the Mennonite Central Committee in setting up the process of resettling a family.

Once again, the community of Fort St. James/Nak’azdli has demonstrated the incredible spirit of generosity that we are known for.

It’s wonderful to be part of this community!

Thank you so much.

Harvey Lynne Goff
