Welcome Kit Drive
World Relief Sacramento resettles between 200-500 families a year. Each family arrives at the airport with only a few suitcases, a difficult past, and high hopes for the future. Welcome Kits provide items they need for their new start in Sacramento. Promoting a Welcome Kit drive in your church is a great way to raise awareness and serve the tangible needs of our newest neighbors.
The kits include kitchen supplies, bedding, and other household items. The value of each kit is $80-$100. You can supply one refugee family with all of their household items (non-furniture) for about $500.
