Join us in keeping alive a 40-year tradition of welcome in Greensboro.

From the moment refugees step off the plane,

donated items are critical to making sure they have what it takes to succeed.

To rebuild their lives, they need furniture,

household goods, toiletries, clothing, and more!

Welcome kits include necessary items, such as pots and pans, new bedding, and cleaning supplies, that refugees will need to make a home here.
