Stamp Out Despair Project
There are over 2,000 immigrants and asylum seekers languishing in “detention” in our county jails — often far from family or friends, confined for indeterminate periods of time, with severely restricted access to the outside world. Starting in November, we will again partner with First Friends of NJ and NY to collect:
Cash donations (to buy phone cards and postage stamps)
Holiday cards, note cards, and writing paper
Handwritten notes of encouragement, addressed “Dear Friend”
Stop by the table in Robinson Lounge before or after Sunday Service during all of November and write a note of encouragement and hopefully to drop off donations.
