Refugees and Asylees often flee their homes at a moment’s notice. They arrive here with few belongings, and high hopes for the future. Welcome Kits provide the basic need items they need as they begin a new journey in our community. You can rally your church, small group, school, workplace, etc. to host a Welcome Kit drive.

More tips for a successful welcome kit drive
- Pre-make bins with the kits taped to the outside that people can take and bring back. It's easy to take a flyer and forget, but if you have a large plastic tub in your car, you are more likely to return it filled up.
- Host a packing party where people bring the needed supplies and assemble them together
