Refugees arrive to the United States with very little and have to quickly begin their lives over again. Welcome Kits are a significant part of welcoming and honoring them when they first arrive in the Seattle area. The Welcome Kits are filled with household items that give refugees the starting essentials they need to rebuild their lives here.
The hope is that these Kits would honor refugees arriving in the United States, welcoming them with dignity, while also meeting a very tangible need. To respect the dignity of our clients, and for health and safety reasons, we can only accept new items in their original packaging. Once a donation has been received, we can provide you with a tax receipt.
If you are planning a Welcome Kit Drive please contact us at so that we can help you plan your efforts and direct you to our biggest needs.
