Urgently Needed Items

In partnership with MCPS, we are putting together summer packs again for refugee kids. These will include important information on reading over the summer and nutrition, as well as new books, educational toys and art supplies. We have the books, but are in need of small puzzles, games, flashcards, and any sort of art supplies. Please drop them by the office by the end of May. Thank you!

Help Create a Welcome Kit

Most refugees arrive to the United States with next to nothing. Help them rebuild their lives by putting together a Welcome Kit (Download: How to Create a Welcome Kit). These kits will help provide a “soft landing” and allow them to save their money for rent and food. You can select the welcome kit you feel most comfortable donating and are welcome to create as many as you would like.
