Do you enjoy crafts? The Refugee Ministry has a short term opportunity for you! Catholic Social Services has recently asked us to help facilitate a small cottage industry which will produce supplemental income for under or unemployed refugee families. The product will be greeting cards, and we are looking for crafters (or anyone – no special skills required) to be trainers in card assembly.
What’s involved? The owner of the company will supply all materials and a training session in card assembly. The assembly process is very simple. The “train the trainers” stage should require only a few hours. The next step will be to train the refugees. I anticipate that this training stage will take approximately three to four classes which will be held at Christ the King. Multiple trainers would be ideal. Once the training is completed, you’re finished! If you would like to participate in this opportunity for refugees, please contact Barb Harvey (369-9623 or barbara.harvey @ gmail.com).
