“Warm Up to Refugees” Donations Drive

The changing weather can be a rude awakening for anyone in the Seattle area this time of year. The cold and rain can be especially harsh for newly-arrived refugees, many of whom come from warmer regions and often arrive to the United States with little cold-weather clothing. Join World Relief Seattle this fall as we collect donations to help area refugees stay warm and healthy in the chilly months to come.

We are currently accepting the following items in clean and gently-used or new condition:

-Winter Coats and Jackets

-Sweaters and Sweatshirts

-Scarves, Mittens and Gloves

-Warm Hats

-Umbrellas

-Blankets

You can drop off your donations at our Kent offices during business hours (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday: 9-4; Friday: 9-3). Our offices are located at:

841 Central Ave N, Suite C-106

Kent, WA 98030

Can’t bring your donation to Kent? Pick-up could be possible! To discuss pick-up or with any other questions, contact Andrew at ahays@wr.org or 253-277-1121 x 233.
