A team of St. Paul's members and friends are collecting the items below in order to setup a new home for an Afghan refugee family. The items below are required for home set-ups. By signing up for an item, you are agreeing to bring or arrange for someone to bring the item to Shafer Hall in St. Paul's Lutheran Church located at 4900 Connecticut Avenue NW in Washington, DC. Please contact Caitlin Thistle at [email protected] if you need assistance with transport. 

Please note: All items should be in new or excellent condition. We do not accept any items
that are not found on this list. The sign-up for next-level items can be found here.
