Most refugees arrive to the United States with next to nothing, but you can help them rebuild their lives by putting together a Restart Kit. Please purchase new items. The hope is that these kits will bring honor to refugees coming to Salem, reflect their dignity, and meet tangible needs. Choose a category below, place the items in a clear plastic tub that can close, and label the top of the container with the Restart Kit name. We also encourage you to include a hand-written, unsealed note welcoming the family. This is a great opportunity to invite your friends, work teams or small groups to build a kit together. *Note: If an item doesn’t fit in the tub, please tape it to the top of the kit.
When your kit is ready, send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a time to drop off your donation.
