Equipping churches to welcome refugees in to the local community
A bit more: an Upbeat Communities initiative, Welcome Boxes partners with local churches to offer recently settled refugees a warm welcome into the local community. The concept is simple…trained volunteers deliver a welcome box filled with small gifts to the homes of recently arrived refugees. Volunteers then offer ongoing friendship to the family or individual and help to connect them into the local community.
Volunteer roles: resourcing and assembling the boxes; delivering the boxes and offering ongoing friendship and support
