Houston has received a massive influx of refugees recently. Thank you for helping us meet the needs of refugees new to Houston with honor and dignity by donating NEW items for the 40 Bathroom Kits we built during the last WBC + Houston Welcomes Refugees Faith In Action Day. Thank YOU so much for serving alongside us. Houston Welcomes Refugees (HWR) will distribute these kits to refugee families when they first arrive. Your donations helped families that have suffered greatly get a fresh start in life again.
We built Bathroom Kits, and here is a list of the items we put in each kit:
  • Bath Towels (4)
  • Hand Towels (4)
  • Washcloth (4)
  • Loofah (4)
  • Shower curtain
  • Shower curtain rings
  • Small trash basket
  • Floor bathmat
  • Hand Soap
  • Toilet Paper (8 rolls)
  • Tub large enough to hold all these items

If you are shopping online for these items, here are links to our Walmart and Amazon Wish Lists:

To learn about other ways you can serve refugees arriving in our city, please join Houston Welcomes Refugees for an Orientation. Orientations last about an hour and cover some basic information about the refugee resettlement process, why the organization exists, and how attendees can volunteer.
To RSVP and learn more visit: https://www.houstonwelcomesrefugees.com/orientation.
Once your orientation is completed, please watch for an email invitation from HWR to attend a training session.
