Refugee Supply Drive
We are excited to announce that we have a new Compassion and Justice partner, Houston Welcomes Refugees. Houston has become home to a vast number of refugees from around the world and we want to be a part of providing hope, help and honor to these families as they resettle in our city. To do that we’d like to provide Welcome Kits for refugee families when they arrive in Houston because they come with very little, yet they are expected to begin their lives over very quickly.
We can help by putting together Welcome Kits to help meet the needs of the families, so they feel cared for as they establish their lives in Houston.
Welcome Kits are filled with essential household items for every room of the house along with cleaning, and personal care items! These Kits allow a recently resettled family to save their money for other basic needs such as groceries and clothing.
Your participation can be as an individual, or a family, or a group of families, or a home group, or you can engage the community you live in or the street you live on. Our drive will begin on October 16th and run through the 30th of October.
Your generous gift allows refugees to be here welcomed with honor when they first arrive while also meeting tangible needs.
