You can help a refugee or immigrant family by donating home essentials.

JFS helps immigrants and refugees establish new lives in the Puget Sound region. As part of resettlement, JFS assists families in finding and setting up their first American home. When you donate a gift box or boxes of household items, you help a resettling family with the essentials for their new home. This volunteer activity is perfect for individuals, families and groups like congregations, youth groups and book clubs. Please note that donations must be made as one or more of the following ‚Äúcomplete room sets,” and all items must be new in their original packaging. Please no single item or half-box donations.
