After fleeing persecution and hardship, refugees arrive in America having left nearly everything behind. As they start their lives over, one of their most basic needs is help setting up a new home.
Through the Welcome to America! Pack program, you can provide a warm welcome for one of these courageous families when they arrive in our community. You can turn an empty apartment into a home by collecting and delivering all of the basic household items needed for the bedroom, bathroom and kitchen and a first month's supply of food staples. You will meet your refugee family the day they arrive, often with only a few possessions, and personally welcome them with the essential supplies they need.

This is a great opportunity for families, small groups, youth programs and entire church congregations.
“I often feel the biggest benefactors in serving refugees are the volunteers. Only God could create a plan where the people who give many times get more than those who receive.”
