Update on Afghan Family Resettlement
The Afghan Sponsor Circle helped a multi-generational family of 9 settle into a new life here in Reading. The 90-day resettlement support program has come to a close and the group has good news to share. This family will be relocating to California. They have connected with family and an established community there that can provide better work and living opportunities for them all. The recent car fundraising effort brought in $3,100. These funds will be put toward moving expenses. Thanks to all who helped in any way to get this family to the U.S. and out of harms way! For more information, please read this attachment.
