Outreach Committee Responds to Refugee Crisis on Martha’s Vineyard
The sudden, unannounced transport of 48 migrants to the island triggered an outpouring of support from St. Andrews Episcopal Church, Martha’s Vineyard and others far and wide. The event focused a bright light on the need for compassionate care of migrants put in untenable situations. The All Saints Outreach Committee, as a reflection of our values and in keeping with our priorities, felt called to act. The committee is making a $1,000.00 donation from the Reserve Fund to further the work of Episcopal Migration Ministries (EMM), an organization that has done longstanding work across a number of states in refugee resettlement ministry.
