Every Dollar Counts: Relief for Syrian Refugees with Presbyterian Disaster Assistance
Our new Every Dollar Counts project will provide relief for Syrian refugees through Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA). In 2015, 12.2 million of the displaced are Syrians. The number of forcibly displaced persons around the world exceeds 51 million, including some 13 million refugees who lack access to the most basic necessities of life, including food, clean water, safe shelter, health care, education, and protection from confl ict, war, and violence. PDA is actively engaged in responding to the needs of displaced persons and refugees. In addition to providing funds for humanitarian response for Syrians overseas, PDA is working with its partner in refugee resettlement, Church World Service, to resettle Syrian refugees who are coming to the United States. While many Syrian refugees have now found a new home in the US, more are ready to come. Through Every Dollar Counts you can help them find peace and a new hope. As always, we will report our weekly progress.
Call for LTCF Friendly Visitors
Did you know that our congregational care department coordinates a visitation team for long term care facilities (LTCF)? These are church members who devote about 2-3 hours per month, including travel time, to visit our members who reside nearby in assisted living and LTCF. The team of dedicated volunteers brings the presence of PHPC to those who don’t attend worship services. Most of the persons we visit listen via WRR 101.1 FM. The LTCF team rotates, stopping by to see about 3-5 persons at a different facility each month. Visits can be made any day of the week at your own pace. After the visits the team member sends a brief email to the coordinator, Sandy Dehn. That’s all it takes. We currently have openings for two friendly visitors to join the team. Won’t you please consider it? Explore the idea by contacting Dee Wadsworth firstname.lastname@example.org or 214-368-6348 ext 118 for further information as well as training materials for those who wish to participate.
