Refugees arrive to Oregon with few possessions, and have to quickly build their lives again. Restart kits are plastic tubs filled with essential household items. There are 8 restart kits, one for each area of the home. See website for donations needed. Host A Collection Day: Contact Megan at firstname.lastname@example.org,
With each restart kit that’s put together, we’re reminded that it’s small actions that change realities. While kits meet a practical need, they do much more. They symbolize hope and communicate the message of welcome better than anything else can. It’s a first step in saying, “You are not alone. We are for you. You are welcome here.”
To the city of Portland: We’re grateful for all the ways you continue to show up. Because of you, our refugee friends have bedding, pots and pans, bath towels, and tea. Apartments have been turned into homes. The burden of adapting to life in a new country is shared, and our newest neighbors from across the world know that you are for them.
