Help complete Ashour family’s Season for Caring wish list

This week we’re highlighting the remaining wishes of the families featured in the 2017 Season for Caring program.

Last month, Syrian refugee Sami Khalil Ashour, 48, and his family have settled into their new apartment with furniture from Star Furniture and Chair Whimsy. He is driving a new minivan from the AeLK Foundation and Apple Leasing, and his children have clothes and toys from Star Furniture and bikes built and donated by the employees at Waste Connections.

The Ashour family has had many of their needs taken care of through donations. They do need driver’s education for wife Ahlam Fouad Al Battal as well as gift cards for gas and groceries, help with rent and utilities assistance, laptops and a printer, and a PlayStation4 with games.
