Afghan Refugee Welcome kits

First Presbyterian Evanston, through our First Friends ministry is collecting items to create Welcome Kits for the refugees, including those coming from Afghanistan.  Welcome kits contain small household items that refugee families need to get started in their new home.  This tangible "welcome" is a great way to establish connection between us and our new neighbors.  World Relief Chicago will be following up with these families after the initial connection to help support them in creating a sustainable life within the Chicagoland area.

We are hoping as a community we can collect enough items to create at least two full kits.  

If you are able to purchase new items, great.  But gently used items are also acceptable. If you are able to purchase/provide an item, please fill in your name on the sign up. Please note: the number in parenthesis following the item (2) indicates the number of people we would like to sign up, not the number of items you need to purchase.

If you have any questions, please contact: Sally Ivaska [email protected] or Caryl Weinberg [email protected]

Thank you!!!
