Yale Park Family Donations Needed
In September, over 500 refugees from Burma were removed from the Yale Park Apartment complex in Omaha due to code violations found by city inspectors. City inspectors found the residents to be living in deplorable conditions including bed bugs, gas leaks, unsafe electrical wiring and mice. The city in cooperation with several social service agencies has been working to move the 98 families to safer living conditions in Omaha. A non-profit organization called “Restoring Dignity” is coordinating efforts.
F3Omaha wishes to support these efforts. This Saturday, November 17, PAX can bring items to The Oracle and support these families. Reba firstname.lastname@example.org is leading this initiative in cooperation with Dundee Presbyterian Church. Donation items are listed below.
