Refugee Hope & Haven Project

We will require furniture and household goods for the Adam Jr. refugee family expected to arrive in Calgary over the next one to two months but we do not have the capability to store items. We expect to get firm arrival dates soon.

Many thanks to the St. Bonaventure parishioners who have generously donated furniture and household goods to our refugee families and to our volunteers who have generously donated their time and use of vehicles for deliveries.


Please check for furniture updates on the parish website for items required. Anyone interested in donating items please contact the appropriate individuals found on this page.

Please note that the Calgary Catholic Immigration Society has informed us that that it is limiting its personal contacts with refugee families because of the COVID-19 pandemic and does not plan to assign any families to us for furniture and household help until further notice.

We will therefore not have any furniture or household good needs until the situation changes.

SINCERLY, George Pinckney Refugee Program Chairman
