Ways to Help our Accompaniment Family, Melissa, Keysi and Ashley

Melissa, Keysi (10) and Ashley (15 months)

The First Church Accompaniment Team is currently assisting a newly arrived immigrant family as they get settled in the Bay Area. There are lots of ways to help!

The family’s biggest needs are stable housing and employment.  Do you know someone with a low-cost room or in-law unit near public transit?  Do you have a connection who hires monolingual Spanish speakers?  Melissa has experience with housecleaning and factory work.  Any leads are much appreciated!

We are also looking for donations of the following: 
– Clipper cards (for BART and AC Transit)
– Gift cards (grocery stores, Target)
– Cash donations
– Cell phone service (adding Melissa to your family plan)

Monetary donations can be made through Realm (choose “collection plate” and type in “Melissa’s family”).  For other contributions, please contact Kathryn Stambaugh at [email protected].

Thank you!
