He wears size 9 shoe. His size is medium for socks, shirts or sweaters, a jacket, and pants for winter. He also needs a warm blanket for a single bed. If you have something to donate, please drop it off at the church. If you would like to donate money to help purchase some of these items, please make the check out to AUISP, write Mohamed on the Memo line, and send it to Anne Sparks at: 730 Robinette Ridge Rd., New Marshfield, OH 45766.  We will put more details about Mohamed and how our church members and folks in the community are supporting him in the newsletter.   Thank you!
