Afghan Refugee Support

We have read with horror the unimaginable pain of the Afghan people as the Taliban took over their country in less than three weeks. We have watched as many have tried to flee their homeland. Canada has accepted thousands of Afghan refugees many settling in our city.


The Outreach group has the opportunity to furnish an apartment for one family. It is an extremely large undertaking. A link to the requirements to furnish an apartment is at the bottom of this announcement. 


Perhaps you know someone who is moving, downsizing or changing a couch, a bed, bedroom furniture, dining room furniture or living room furniture. We also need all kitchen utensils, pots and pans, cutlery. It goes without saying that this will be someone’s home. We require only gently used or new items and only items on the list. We will be providing an online sigh-up portal which will be used to track all of the donations, and avoid duplicates or unwanted items. Please only donate what is on the list.  We have somewhere to store larger items however if you can manage to hold onto the items until February that would be ideal. We expect the family to arrive in late January or February depending on their paperwork.


Thank you for your continued response to the less fortunate in our city.
