Local Sponsor Circle Program Welcomes Second Ukrainian Family to Monmouth


The Sponsor Circle Program is a community-led resettlement initiative that supports everyday Americans in taking on the responsibility of welcoming newcomers to their communities. Locally, members of the program from Monmouth have recently welcomed a second family from Ukraine shares Pam VanKirk:

“We have brought another family from Ukraine. They have children, three children. The oldest is 12 and they have twins that are 9, a girl and a boy. We have a soccer player, a musician, and the girl also plays piano. The mother speaks five languages and the father is also a musician, but he makes furniture, does some woodworking, and cabinet installation.”

There will be a Community Thanksgiving potluck dinner and welcoming event for both Ukrainian families on Tuesday, November 29th at Immaculate Conception Church beginning at 6 pm. All are welcome to attend and those planning to attend are asked to bring their own table service and a dish to pass.
