Two Syrian families could arrive in North Bay from a refugee camp in Lebanon before Christmas.
Community partners, including Mayor Al McDonald and the North Bay and District Multicultural Centre, are raising fifty-thousand dollars for the cause. Over $36,000 has already been raised by the community.
The families could be made up of 12 people each. The expectation is that they would be self-sufficient for a year. Donations can be made online at www.nbdmc.ca. There will be a request out to the community soon for household items, furniture and clothing.
