El Refugio is a guest house that offers overnight shelter for families who have traveled great distances to visit loved ones at Stewart Detention Center in Lumpkin, Georgia. Stewart is an ICE Detention Center, filled with immigrants, both documented and undocumented.
We are partnering with St. Benedict’s Episcopal Church to collect gas and food cards for families who travel many miles to get to Lumpkin. Also needed are women’s pants (any size), duffel bags, backpacks, socks, travel games, and greeting cards. There will be a collection box in the narthex.
