We are supporting two causes this month: our annual Christmas Gifts for the Retired Sisters and this season's Support to the Afghan Refugees.
Every year, we ask the local retired sisters what they'd like for Christmas, and we work to make their wishes come true.
This year, the Dominican Sisters are requesting a new blood pressure machine that costs $500. This will be used by the nuns living in the Infirmary of the Dominican Motherhouse.
The Sisters of Mercy asked for:
• Postage stamps
• Sets of blank note cards
• Thank you cards
• Gift cards to Michaels, Joann Fabric or Hobby Lobby (they have knitters and crafters)
• Towel sets
Afghan Refugees: How to Support
Over the course of the next six months, CATHOLIC CHARITIES will help resettle
150 Afghans into local communities as part of the effort to help them escape Taliban rule.
“We serve people because we can address their needs, and addressing the humanitarian needs of refugees has been part of the mission of Catholic Charities in the Diocese of Nashville since its founding in the early 1960s,” said Rich Musacchio, diocesan director of communications.
Amy Fabian, refugee resources specialist for Catholic Charities, is coordinating this effort. At the October meeting, she spoke briefly about the resettling of Afghani families and has asked us to consider donating to support their efforts.
The families are in need of the following:
Full & Twin blankets and sheet sets
Pots & Pan sets
Shampoo and conditioner
Bathroom trash cans
Bathroom and kitchen cleaner
Shower curtain, liner, and hooks
If you would like to contribute, please bring your donations to our upcoming monthly meetings in October and November. You may also mail a check to help pay for all of the requested items. Please make your check out to NCBWL, specifying “Christmas Gifts” in the memo, and mail to PO Box 50994, Nashville TN 37205.
