Welcoming our Refugees
into their First Home in America
Help us collect items needed for our newly arriving brothers and sisters arriving from Syria, Iraq, Chad, Sudan and Somalia, the Congo, Nepal, Eritrea and other countries. Their suffering and their stories are very hard to hear. But, what we DO hear, is that they want to
be good, productive, educated, tax-paying Americans … but they need some help getting started. Please ask friends, family and fellow congregants for any of the following:
1) For Children:
Slightly-Used Toys (incl. cuddly animal toys/bears) for all ages
Coloring Books and non-toxic crayons (esp. ABCs and Numbers)
Car Seats and Booster Seats for Infant and toddler
Cribs, High Chairs, Strollers, and Backpacks
Pampers, Bicycles (adult-sized also), etc.
2) Kitchen Items:
Dishes, Glasses & Cups, Silverware and Serving Spoons
Microwave, Pots & Pans of all sizes
Spatulas, Mixing Bowls, Food Storage Containers
Broom and Small Hand Sweeper, Mop and Bucket
3) Household Items:
Furniture (Sofas, Chairs, Lamps, Bookcases, Chest of Drawers, etc.)
Twin Beds and Mattresses, Bunk Beds, Rugs, Pictures for the walls
Washer and Dryer for Clothes, Clothes and Pants Hangers
TV and Children’s DVDs and even Tapes
Sheets (mostly for the Twin Beds), Towels, Washcloths, etc.
Waste and Laundry Baskets, Broom and Dust Pan
4) Gift Cards -
Many people have items to donate, but others might prefer to
donate money or gift cards for Walmart, Target, local markets, etc.
Checks can be made out to World Relief.
These would all be gratefully accepted.

If you have a group that would like to prepare “Welcome Kits” of Toiletries or Cleaning Supplies, a list can be provided.
