Supporting Syrian Refugee families in Toronto

Location: Department of English, University of Toronto

One of our English Faculty members has joined the Palmerston Community that is sponsoring two Syrian refugee families. It’s a dynamic group of women and men from all walks of life, a microcosm of Canada in every respect.  As lead organizers they are in the process of raising funds to bring to Canada one of the two families sponsored by the Palmerston Community. They have raised $75,554. The goal is $92,800. The first family of 6 adults arrives Dec. 23.
You may have already supported this cause or you may be involved in the same endeavour. If not, and if you can spare a donation at this point, however small, please go to the link below. The Palmerston Community group is working under the sponsorship of the Mennonite Central Committee (MCC), and all donations receive a tax receipt. Donors remain anonymous to the sponsoring group’s members.

Here's the link to the donation page:

Once more information is known about the family they are sponsoring, they will also need donations of furniture, kitchen supplies, clothing, toiletries, toys, etc. To contribute this way, or if you have any questions, please contact:

With much gratitude for considering this, and warm wishes for the festive season.
