Ways To Give -- Computers & School

We have identified some needs and fun things to give to and were wondering if others would like to help us with these.

First of all a sweet Mexican college student that we all love, Lizeth Castro, put her laptop on her car this weekend. She put her bags, etc, in the car and headed down Broadway. You guessed it, as she was driving her computer flew off the top of her car and the car behind her drove over it. Would you like to help us get Lizeth a new laptop?

Secondly, Etienne received "Student of the Year" and recognition for his Gates Scholarship at a Rock Bridge High School awards ceremony this week. Etienne will be heading off to college this Fall and we would like to see him bring a laptop with him to school. Would you like to help us get a laptop for him?

And finally Marianne Bihomora, one of our favorite Rwandan refugees, is helping to take care of her niece in Rwanda. In fact, Marianne has started the paperwork to get her a visa to live here in the U.S. with her. I found out today that Marianne doesn't have any money in her bank account, yet not only is she working hard to provide for her own family she is also trying to raise $80 to pay for her niece's schooling in Rwanda. Would you like to help us pay for the schooling?

All your gifts are tax-deductible because City of Refuge is a 501c3 non-profit organization. We will provide you with a receipt.

Would you like the joy of giving today? Then drop by or mail us a check to: City of Refuge; 102 Dayspring Dr; Columbia, MO 65203. Every $1 helps.
