In light of Cranbrook's proclamation, it would be helpful if those agencies proposing to sponsor refugees could let the general public know. Although there are many good causes for donations, this is a particularly generous time of year and might be a good time to begin fundraising for any potential refugees coming to Cranbrook. It is our understanding that some applications have been forwarded to immigration already. Is there a local fund people might donate to? Please let us know and we will publish it.

The Cranbrook Guardian subsequently received the article published under the title 'The Cranbrook Hub for Refugees'. It is our understanding donations are beginning to be received.
