Sligo Church members have mobilized to provide much needed relief to refugees in and around Takoma Park.

These relief efforts include furnishing refugee homes with donated furniture items.

Support is also provided through volunteers who prepare and deliver welcome bags containing culturally relevant food items, general hygiene products, and children’s toys to families that are most vulnerable.

Some refugee families have expressed the view that Seventh-day Adventists share common beliefs and values with them.

Contact the Youth and Young Adult Pastor for more information. Jonathan Gantt
