Afghan Refugee Resettlement Aid

Thousands of refugees evacuated from Afghanistan after serving alongside American Forces are being resettled in Southeast Texas. Please help us return their acts of courage with our acts of kindness by collecting and assembling Personal Care Kits and/or Household Kits.  These will be delivered to the various non-profit agencies that are overseeing this huge effort.

Congregations will collect and assemble kits and deliver them to one of the following regional locations by March 30, 2022.
