Afghan Refugee Welcome Kits

First Presbyterian Evanston, through our First Friends ministry is collecting items to create Welcome Kits for the refugees, including those coming from Afghanistan. Welcome kits contain small household items that refugee families need to get started in their new home. This tangible “welcome” is a great way to establish connection between us and our new neighbors. World Relief Chicago will be following up with these families after the initial connection to help support them in creating a sustainable life within the Chicagoland area. We are hoping as a community we can collect enough items to create at least two full kits.
Please sign up via the sign up genius link,
as your commitment to purchase that item, and then bring the item(s) to church. This helps us get complete kits! A container will be at the front desk for drop off.
If you have any questions, please contact: Sally Ivaska sallyivaska1@gmail.com or Caryl Weinberg cweinberg@firstpresevanston.org
