As Seattle resettles more and more Afghan refugees, we are hoping that the SEAPAX community is ready to step up and contribute in a number of ways. The Peace Corps Community for Refugees (PCC4R) has invited SEAPAX to partner with the regional affiliate of the Lutheran Immigrant and Refugee Service, 𝗟𝘂𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗮𝗻 𝗖𝗼𝗺𝗺𝘂𝗻𝗶𝘁𝘆 𝗦𝗲𝗿𝘃𝗶𝗰𝗲𝘀 𝗡𝗼𝗿𝘁𝗵𝘄𝗲𝘀𝘁 (𝗟𝗖𝗦𝗡𝗪).
The latest donation request for Refugee Starter Kits and Needed Items (see full image of list below) include toiletries, cleaning supplies, kitchen items, and diapers for "starter kits". Contact Edie Cooke and Mouammar Abouagila for more information.
They are also seeking people who have weekday availability to transport clients to appointments and pick up and deliver donations and people who can temporarily host refugees in their homes. Please visit the LCSNW website or contact Sheridan Moore, (503)-893-8853) and firstname.lastname@example.org for their current needs, opportunities, contacts, and forms.
