Lexington is hosting over 30 families who are temporarily sheltered in town, with elementary, middle, and high school students. They are in urgent need of the basics, warm clothing and coats.
A consortium of local groups has set up a fund to provide for this immediate need. We will be purchasing for the young children and adults immediately. Sheltered Families Fund: http://bit.ly/468likf
There is also an Amazon gift list for consumables, gift cards, and jackets which we will keep updated. Gift Cards will be used by schools to buy needed clothing items: https://tinyurl.com/Lex-supplies-Amazon
In the longer term, there will be a need for ESL lessons and activities for the kids. We also will eventually ask for books, toys, clothing donations from the community.
If you can help please fill in this form: https://tinyurl.com/Lex-refugee-help
We do not have storage for donations at this time. We are asking the community to please DO NOT drop off donated items to any locations or individuals. We will provide an update once a centralized location has been identified.
Thank you for all your giving!
