More tips for a successful Welcome Kit Drive

  • Pre-make bins with the kit lists taped to the outside. It makes it easier to remember to actually fill it up and bring it back AND the bins come in handy during apartment setups.
  • Host a packing party where people bring supplies and assemble the kits together. You can also make "Welcome to our community" greeting cards.
  • Gift cards needed!
  • Deliver or mail gift cards to our office so new arrivals can use them to select their own items. Gift cards are also easier to store!
  • Cards for $25-$50 to Amazon, Safeway, Fred Meyer, WinCo, Target, and Goodwill are especially helpful.
