SAVE THE DATE: REFUGEE WELCOME KITS PACKING PARTY - SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2020 (Weekend of Rotary Peace Day)
One of NOVARPCV's upcoming service projects is the Refugee Welcome Kits Packing Party on Saturday, February 22, 2020 at the Thomas Jefferson Library, from 9:30-11 am. Please join us as we help welcome new refugees to our community by packing together 25 Toiletry Kits, 25 Cleaning Kits, and five Linen Kits. All kits will directly benefit refugees being resettled in our area. Lutheran Social Services of the National Capital Area's Refugee and Immigrant Services program works in partnership with the U.S. State Department to welcome and resettle refugees from around the world, including Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and West Africa.
Here is the link to sign up to bring needed refugee items:
We've had great success and lots of fun at our previous packing party events and look forward to another one! To date, we've packed and donated more than 150 Welcome Kits to incoming refugees. After we reach our goal with this next one, our count will be about 215 total Welcome Kits.
You can participate by 1) both donating needed items for refugees and bringing them to the packing party, 2) only donating needed items (we need your support, so please arrange with someone from NOVARPCV to pick up your donations, which we will bring to the packing party), or 3) only volunteering at the packing party (we need your help, so please let us know at NOVA RPCV if you're able to be there).
Please bring what you sign up to bring and let's get packing! It'll be FUN! Bring your family and friends too.
