"Home Set-Up" for Resettlement of Afghan Allies Refugee Family

 

*******UPDATE********

GIVEN THE OVERWHELMING GENEROSITY OF EVERYONE IN OUR COMMUNITY, WE HAVE RECEIVED ALL THAT IS NEEDED FOR THIS FAMILY!  We are therefore seeking to sponsor a 2nd family in the near future in order to provide all that has been donated already.  We will post another SignUp Genius at that time for any remaining items not already collected in this round which the 2nd family may need. In the meantime, you may also drop off any donations at Lutheran Social Services of the National Capital Area (LSSNCA), 4911 Ox Road in Fairfax, VA. Thank you so much for everyone's incredible generosity over the last two days to make this happen!!!

*********************

Thank you for helping us quickly furnish (2 days notice!) the apartment for an Afghan family of 7 who will be arriving THIS FRIDAY, Aug. 27th in northern Virginia. The family has been evacuated on a Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) in honor of their service to the U.S. in Afghanistan. Mt. Hope Baptist Church (Ashburn, VA) is providing all home essentials/furniture for this apartment in partnership with the Lutheran Social Services National Capital Area (LSSNCA), which secured their apartment.

We need your help! Please review the items listed below and sign up for whatever you can donate (first name/last initial is fine). All listed items are required for the home setup unless indicated as "optional".  The family includes husband/wife, three teenagers (2 sons/1 daughter), and two younger daughters (ages 8 & 5).  All items should be in new or excellent condition. 

Please drop off your donations if at all possible BY THIS FRIDAY AFTERNOON in the bins located on the porch of 22421 Aging Oak Dr., Leesburg, VA.  If you are donating a large item, i.e. bed, couch, please contact me to coordinate the drop off, or we can arrange a pick up.  We would also greatly appreciate the donation of any gift cards (Walmart, Target, Amazon, grocery stores) to purchase all outstanding items which have not been donated.

If you won't be able to provide your donation until a few days after Friday, we still need your donation!  This is a quick turnaround during a very busy time with schools starting, so we will be doing 1 delivery on Friday, and a 2nd delivery sometime over the weekend or shortly thereafter. Please message or email Megan at [email protected] with any questions!  Thank you so much for your compassion and generosity towards this Afghan family who will be arriving so soon to our community.
