We Welcome Ernesto, a Political Refugee

Categories: What's New?

On Thursday, June 23, we welcomed Ernesto Tamayo, a Cuban political refugee cosponsored by St. Stephen’s Church and Episcopal Migration Ministries.

Ernesto came to us without family or friends in the United States, arriving with only the clothes on his back. 

Together we can touch and improve Ernesto’s future

St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, Coconut Grove, Florida, to assist refugee.
Ernesto needs clothes.  He can use new or gently used dress shirts and T-shirts (size M/L); shoes (size 8) and socks; pants, jeans, shorts and belts (size 34); baseball caps and sunglasses.  Hanes underwear would also be welcome.

We also accept small amounts of cash and checks (payable to “Episcopal Migration Ministries” – write Ernesto Tamayo on the memo line).
