Afghan Refugees Need Assistance Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Arlington is one of two organizations leading the effort to find secure housing, food, and supplies for Afghan SIV arrivals in the mid-Atlantic area.  You can assist their efforts to outfit apartments for refugee families, using the Amazon wish-list located at the link below.  (The intersection of COVID19 coupled with the State Department requirements for outfitting refugee housing translates into delivering as many new items to the families as possible.) https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/G0EPWH86L6MC/ref=hz_ls_biz_ex   Feel free to use this list as a guide at other stores such as Bed, Bath & Beyond, Macy’s, Kohl’s, Burlington, or Big Lots – they have many similar/equivalent items. Currently, CCDA is concentrating on small, household, kitchen, and bedding items. For those donations not purchased through AMAZON please: MRS/Catholic Charities, 80 North Glebe Road, Arlington, VA 22203 | office: 703.520.4011.
