Dec. 18 Collection Drive for Afghan refugees

Updated: a day ago

Rhode Island is welcoming Afghan families who have fled the Taliban--including some who will be relocating to North Kingstown. Homes, goods and services, mentors, funds, and volunteer hours are all needed to help these families make a smooth transition.

On Saturday, Dec. 18, in direct support of families resettling in Wickford and nearby Kingston the following week, we're holding an all-day collection drive for new or gently used items at NK's Cold Spring Community Center (36 Beach Street). Sign up to help here:


KEEP WATCHING THIS SITE FOR A LINK TO A SIGNUP GENIUS where you can offer specific items needed by these exact families. Until it's ready, you can see a GENERAL list--plus additional volunteer opportunities--at https://www.afghanreliefri.org/.

Our partners in this mission include Dorcas International Institute of Rhode Island (DIIRI) and the Rhode Island National Guard.
