Description:
Pictou County Safe Harbour is taking part in RIDE for Refuge on Saturday, Oct. 3rd to raise money to help cover the costs associated with sponsoring a family. As part of the event, teams of five to 10 people enter to raise funds for their designated charity – in this case Pictou County Safe Harbour. The team chooses to walk, ride their bikes, or participate in another activity, asking their friends and family to pitch in and sponsor their efforts. Because of COVID-19 and the crowd gathering restrictions in place, participants in this year’s event will not all meet at one place, but instead can either meet with their team or take part in a physical activity independently and then compile their totals. People who want to take part but don’t have a team can join one of the other teams and people can also make a donation without taking part in the physical activities. They can do that online at rideforrefuge.org or write a cheque to 'Ride for Refuge' and drop it off at Trinity United Church. For more information on how you can take part in this year’s fundraiser, contact Kailee Brennan at (902) 331-0451.

Pictou County Safe Harbour (PCSH) is a community-based refugee sponsorship group that was founded in 2015 in response to the Syrian Refugee Crisis. PCSH began with the sponsorship of one family from Syria in 2016, but in the years since, PCSH has remained an active sponsorship group and has welcomed nearly 50 individuals to the community from both Syria the Democratic Republic of the Congo. These newcomers have become vital citizens within our community - working as teachers, nursing aids, construction workers and cooks. We want to continue this efforts and invite you to join us in raising funds to sponsor additional families in 2021 - increasing the strength, diversity and friendships within our community!
