Here We Go!

Donating food for refugee familiesBy Gary Kilmer

Summer vacation is over. The grand children have gone and most of the rest of us have returned from our travels and other summer activities. I hope everyone had a wonderful time with family and friends and whatever adventures you were able to undertake.

We are happy that LSR was able to continue to providing emergency food and other support for an ever-changing list of 20-30 refugee families in urgent need in Béziers and Carcassonne throughout the long, hot summer. Now both our food pantry and bank account are running low.

Please take a moment now to consider making a donation of food (see the list of needed food items and drop off points below) or cash (via PayPal or cheque in favour of LSR) to help us continue with renewed vigor the work that makes a big difference to so many families. I also hope that you will consider increasing your personal involvement in LSR or other refugee support activities according to your individual interests and capabilities.

Thanks to everyone who has provided such generous support in the past and to those who will do so now. Please contact me ( with any questions.

When we all do a little, a lot can be accomplished.

The following non-perishable items are especially needed now to restock the LSR pantry:

Rice (plain – no sachets)
Pasta (no couscous please)
Beans in cans or dried – white, brown
Oil (olive, sunflower, etc.)
Canned corn
Flour and sugar
Milk (not 0%)
Peanut butter
Canned (tinned) tomatoes, tomato purée, tomato paste
Tuna fish
Instant coffee, plain black breakfast tea (not green or Earl Gray)
Fruit juice
Nappies size 5
Toilet paper, paper towels
Feminine hygiene products (not tampons)
Soap, shaving cream, razors, toothpaste (no tooth brushes)
Washing up liquid, laundry detergent, having cream, razors
