The Kimberley Refugee Resettlement Group are shoring up funds to bring a second family to Canada.
The KRRG is partnering with the Wasa Lions Club to host a spaghetti supper fundraiser Saturday night.
Organizer Wilma Harding says the group hopes to repeat their success after bringing a family from Pakistan to the community.
“I think we’ve got a lot of information out into the community about the needs of refugees and what we can do to help them,” Harding says. “I think its important to be reaching to people who are not as fortunate as we are.”
She says the dinner in 2016 was crucial to their efforts to bring a family from Pakistan to town.
Harding says the group’s efforts are ongoing and won’t end with securing another family in the community.
They hope to meet their fundraising target before the end of the year.
The spaghetti dinner gets underway at the Wasa Community Hall 5 pm Saturday night.
