Apartment Set Up


When a refugee family arrives, Gathering Humanity takes donated items to set up an apartment for them. Groups/individuals can collect or use items from our warehouse. We rely on volunteers to assist in setting up these homes. Apartment setups usually take place in the northwest Valley and take approximately two to three hours. IF SIGNING UP MORE THAN ONE VOLUNTEER PLEASE FILL OUT A SLOT PER PERSON.

Provide Groceries or a Prepared Meal


We provide each refugee with two weeks of groceries when they arrive. If you would like to order and pay for two weeks’ worth of groceries for a refugee family, you can shop using our list as a guide. You can also make a Walmart online grocery order that a GH volunteer will pick up. Click on the links for a grocery list specific to the refugee family’s country of origin and more details about delivery. We provide a prepared meal for each refugee family upon arrival. You can make a meal, specific to the country of the refugee family, for them to eat upon arrival. Please follow the guidelines for meal preparation.
