St Pauls UCC Church Raising Funds to Support Recent Bhutanese Family Relocated Here from Refugee Camp

James Hicks e-mailed with a plea for monetary support. Excerpts from the e-mail follow.

"Our Church, St. Pauls UCC is helping a Bhutanese family, after they lived for years in a refugee camp in India, relocate here in Chicago. They arrived here last Thursday. But we found out on their arrival that they do not have winter clothes; indeed, two of the sons do not have shoes, but only sandals, one in flip flops, and we all know you can't make it through a Windy City winter in sandals. And they were all in need of winter coats. So we are asking each of you we are contacting to send at least $20 or $25, and more if you are able, to St. Pauls Church, for the Phuyel family, a Mom, Dad, and three sons, one 19, one 15, and one 11...

You can make your check out to St. Pauls and mail it Attention: Rev. Jeff Carlson."

The address to send money and support is:
St. Pauls UCC
Attn: Rev. J. Carlson
2335 N. Orchard
Chicago, IL 60614
