In conjunction with our training event on Saturday, February 24, our Poor Box collection this week will go to the DC Visitation Network. This organization does several things including:
- Making social visits to people who are detained by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in Maryland and Virginia
- Hosting a Pen Pal Program which sends letters of solace, encouragement, and a very real connection to the outside world in the middle of a very difficult time in someone’s life.
- Offering Advocacy/Education in areas of difficulties encountered by those trying to live in the United States

If you would like to donate, the Poor Boxes are located in the Chapel of Grace and in the Narthex of the church. We thank you for your generosity.
