We are so excited to be partnering with Houston Welcomes Refugees, which helps ease the resettling process for refugees coming to Houston by mobilizing invested, caring volunteers, fostering hope amidst crisis. Refugees arrive to the United States with very little and have to quickly begin their lives over again. Generation SERVE volunteers will make Welcome Kits filled with household items that provide refugees the starting essentials needed in their new homes. The hope is that these kits would honor refugees arriving in Houston, welcoming them with dignity, while also meeting a very tangible need. Volunteers can donate a complete kit or kits and/or host a Welcome Kit Drive with family and friends.
