To all who responded to our call for towels, pots/pans, and flatware - what a wonderful response we had. Dozens of towels, sets of flatware and pot/pans came quickly into our office enabling us to do a fast turn around and give them to incoming families.
To the Project Linus Blanketeers: They make adorable blankets with love sewn in and we are very blessed to have received over 30 of these beautiful and useful blankets recently. They also went right out again to incoming refugee children.
To so many who have donated furniture and furnishings and clothes - we thank you for all that you do to help the refugees we serve.

The second semester for ECU College of Nursing students has concluded with a Health Fair at the Christ Church Ministry Center in downtown New Bern. About 30 refugees took advantage of the chance to have blood pressure readings and glucose monitorings as well as to learn about nutrition, hygiene and immunizations. Both nurses and refugees had a good day and both learned more about each other.
