OUTREACH

  • Did you know that while you are on vacation this summer, there is something you could do to help our fellow Emmaus guests? Collect toiletries at the hotels you visit through your travels! We are in desperate need of lotion, shampoo, soap, toothpaste, rain ponchos, tissues. 
  • St. Paul's is working with other congregations to help an agency in Richmond resettle a family from Afghanistan. The Rahmatys are doing well. Nasim is adjusting to an American work environment, his wife is learning English, and the children are all doing well. We are looking for 1-2 individuals who can drive and accompany the family to appointments as needed. Nasim has also asked for an ESL coach who could meet with him ideally 2 hours per week (e.g., one night per week, 7-8 pm at the least, or two nights/wk, or one night + one weekend day (1 hour each) at the most). Please contact Jon Heckel at jon.heckel1@gmail.com or 804-201-4542 or Sarah Lageman at sarah_lageman@hotmail.com or 804-840-4512 if you have interest.
