Support recently arrived refugees! Bring donations of: shampoo, soap, toothbrushes, toothpaste. Refugee Community Connection will distribute to families in need.
Refugee Community Connection is an all-volunteer community organization that seeks to ease the transition for newly arrived refugees to Chicago, with our focus on Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) holders, by providing household necessities, information and resources, through a personal connection from welcoming community members. We have rooms of donated items where families can shop for free, and we coordinate delivery of larger donated items directly to the families in need. We strive to ensure each family has urgent needs met with basic furniture, beds and bedding, computer, phone, kitchenware and appliances, clothing and footwear, cleaning supplies, diapers and toiletries as needed. We seek to supplement refugee basic needs not already met by professional refugee resettlement agencies and government services.
