Furnishing Apartment for Afghan Refugee Family

For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink,

I was a stranger and you welcomed me.

(Matthew 25:35)

The Refugee Task Force invites your help in furnishing an apartment for a newly arriving refugee family. At present, we’re planning for a family of four. We are working through Lutheran Social Services-National Capital Area, a local partner for Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service.

To indicate your donations, please use the form below. The list will continue to be updated.

To donate furniture, please give the item’s dimensions and condition. Please do not take furniture to church. We will contact donors to arrange transport. We will have a storage location available about September 12. It may also be helpful if you could send a digital photo to either Kelly or Pastor Ed (see contact info below).

Household items may be brought to church and deposited in the foyer; look for the designated spot. They will then be moved to a storage area at church. Any excess items will be directed to another charitable cause. In general, gently used items are welcome so long as they are in good working condition.  The pillows, cleaning supplies and personal hygiene products must be new/sealed.  Thank you for understanding. 

We expect that soon we will be able to add gift cards, electronics, foodstuffs and clothing to our donations list. 


As you know from the news, this is an urgent need. We are blessed that our church is so capably ready to welcome our participation through Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, one of nine
agencies used by the State Department to resettle refugees.

Please review the needs listed and add your name to any items you are able to donate.  For questions about the signup, please email Kelly ([email protected]).  For questions about the Refugee Task Force, please email Pastor Ed ([email protected]).  We welcome your willingness to contribute and ask that you please keep our Afghan sisters and brothers in your prayers.  We are grateful for your generousity.
