Karen GO! Project

**Project is split into 3 shifts: 10am-12pm, 12-2pm, 2-4pm**

Impacting a Karen Refugee Family in Omaha

THEIR STORY: Four years ago, a Karen family moved to the United States after spending a decade in a Thailand refugee camp. Upon coming to the United States, the father gained employment in a meat packing factory and the family began saving penny by penny, hoping one day to save enough to buy a home. Four years of saving paid off, and they were able to put down a small down payment on a house! This was a huge relief, as they had been raising their eight kids in a two bedroom apartment for four years. Moving to the house has been a tremendous blessing for the family, but it also has its disadvantages. Home repairs are expensive and the father's income is enough to pay the mortgage and bills, but not much else. Relevant and Restoring Dignity (one of our partners) found out that this family was struggling to obtain household items and house repairs, so we met with them and they welcomed our help with open arms!

OUR PROJECT: Join us on Saturday, October 6 as we serve this Karen family of 10 by providing much-needed household items, cleaning, doing minor home repairs, and teaching them organizational skills. We’ll split the project up into 3 shifts: 10am-12pm, 12-2pm, and 2-4pm. Serve for a two-hour shift and make a huge impact in the life of this family! Register by October 3rd.

You can also donate items that the family needs. View a list of needed items.
