D22 Update – July 4, 2023 – Independence Day

We have a total of 34 guests currently at the police station. We had to say goodbye to three of our asylum seekers, most notably Juan Carlos – the artist.

We are having a special celebration at the Edna White Garden tonight in celebration our nation. We are having a traditional picnic. Please bring a side dish to share. Thank you Melissa!

Today is the 247 anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

There are many open spots to be filled so Please consider signing up for our meal train. We can really use help in providing meals to our newest neighbors.

If you are in the position, please consider a monetary donation to help defer the costs. The 19th Ward Mutual Aid covers all expenses as they relate to our refugees. The costs do add up over time and as we get new asylum seekers. We start over with every new group. We make sure that there is a soft bed and a full tummy for the children and adults. Please consider whatever you can to help our newest neighbors.
