July Outreach: Cooking oil and Rice for RefugeeNet
RefugeeNet is an Episcopal Outreach program of the Diocese of San Diego that we have supported for years with donations of thousands of pounds of rice and hundreds of gallons of cooking oil. The refugee families who rely on this support come mainly from refugee camps in Thailand and South Sudan, where they have gone to escape war and religious persecution in Myanmar (Burma) and Sudan, and ultimately settled in the U.S. under the auspices of both our government and the United Nations. Rice and cooking oil culturally make up a major portion of their diets. You may donate to this beneficial program with bags of rice and bottles of cooking oil, or by a check indicating “RefugeeNet” on the memo line. Contact Mike if you have any questions.
