Make Welcome Kits for Refugees in Need
The International Rescue Committee (IRC) responds to the world's worst humanitarian crises and helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover, and gain control of their future. IRC is gathering welcome kits for newly arrived families, asylees and victims of Human Trafficking. Welcome kits offer refugees with primary sets of necessities upon their arrival and also increases their efficiency in distributing goods to their clients. The welcome kits include items, such as basic kitchen necessities, personal hygiene items, bedding, and cleaning supplies. Furthermore, donating a completed kit increases the staff's efficiency in distributing these goods to newly arrived refugees. Please label and package completed welcome kits in reusable bags/boxes and mail/deliver to the address above. Click here for a detailed list of items needed for the welcome kit.
