Our second sponsored Syrian family is arriving!
Welcome to the Collingwood Syrian Family Sponsorship Fund
07.09.2017 – The Collingwood Syrian Family Sponsorship Committee is pleased to announce that the second of our sponsored Syrian families is set to arrive on September 14.
They will be joining the Bozans, our first sponsored family as well as three other Syrian families who have recently re-located here, one from Thornbury and the other from Saskatoon. The First Presbyterian Church Sponsorship Group has also recently welcomed their sponsored Syrian family as well. All of the newcomers to Collingwood are are very supportive in helping each other. Support from the whole community has been nothing short of astounding in assisting these families locate schools and connecting them with housing and employment opportunities. Committee financial assistance draws to a close at the end of one year. Government financial aid expired after just six months. All of our newcomers are gratefully thriving as families, friends and neighbours, and in safety, in Collingwood.
Our Syrian Sponsorship Committee has access to many resources that have helped reduce some of the above costs and at this time we are not in need of further donations of household furnishings.
