We are currently working with Turkish asylee families who have moved here with the clothes on their backs and nothing else besides their faith in America.
We met them and their small children, and they represent the very best of American ideals. Although they have nothing, they still shared tea, Turkish coffee, and small treats with the ARI team yesterday as we sat together on the floors of their small Renton apartments.
They need chairs, couches, kitchen tables, books for children pre-K to 2nd grade, and any other basic goods that a young family would need.
If you have extra furniture/childrens books/household goods lying around, or would like to donate, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can reach Anny at 206-228-0405 for donating goods. You can also donate by clicking our "Donate" button.
Please help us spread the word. There are more families coming. Thank you!
We have created a "Welcome Home" Donations Kit which enlists starter items for newly arrived refugees. Please be aware there are multiple listings for items like shampoo, comforter sets and towels. That is only to give our donors some options. Please share the list with your friends and family.
