Steveworks Lends a Hand to Family Granted Asylum

The steveworks team took some time after hours to help an Ethiopian family who have been granted asylum. Steve and the crew made stops at five homes around Newton to collect furnishings to equip an apartment in Malden for the grateful family of four. The furniture, kitchenware, linens, and other household goods were donated by members of six Newton and Brookline congregations.

The Ethiopian family are now enjoying their first home in the United States. It was a generous, multi-faith, effort!
