World Relief High Point/Winston-Salem resettles over 500 refugees a year in the Triad area. Our goal is to help restore dignity to refugees and survivors of human trafficking.
- Refugees often flee their homes at a moment's notice. They arrive at the airport with few belongings, a difficult past, and high hopes for the future.
- The refugee clients we serve are coming through a Federal program that provides a small amount of transitional funding.
- By providing Welcome Kits, you are helping to ensure that refugees are able to spend those funds on other necessary costs such as rent and weekly groceries.
There are many types of welcome kits to choose from.
Each kit contains basic items that can be purchased at most retail stores like Walmart, Target, Dollar Stores, and Costco. The amount spent on each kit may vary. A shopping list is located under the resources section.
- Pick one or more Welcome Kits from the NEW WELCOME KITS.pdf
- Mobilize your small group, family, church, or school group to collect the items on the list.
- Some items may be used, but must be in good condition.
- Pack items in a sturdy box (Large plastic bins work well and will be re-used by refugee families).
- Drop off at the World Relief High Point Office or contact us for help with pick-ups.
- Along with your kit, an optional donation of $25 helps cover transportation and storage costs. You can donate online at http://worldreliefhighpoint.org/give-2/give-make-a-financial-gift or attach your donation in an envelope on the outside of your kit.
