Refugee Welcome Packages

When refugees arrive to Washtenaw County, they come with the clothes on their backs and a suitcase. Some have left their country of origin in such a hurry that they do not even have essential items like toiletries. JFS gives donors the opportunity to provide these individuals with a renewed sense of dignity.

Pre-made “Welcome Packages” for refugees consist of personal items including basics such as shampoo and toothpaste, as well as laundry supplies, household cleaners, towels, and bedding. (Add-on packages are available for baby items, and school supplies for children.)

Donors can purchase Welcome Packages for newly arrived refugees online or by phone (734-769-0209). Welcome Packages are available at the following donation levels:

• Individual – $36
• Family of Two – $72
• Family of Three – $108
• Family of Four – $144
• Family of Five – $180
• Family of Six – $216

Add-on packages:
• “Baby Bundle” – including diapers and wipes, lotion and rash cream – $36
• “Back to School” – including essential school supplies for kids – $36

Welcome Packages, like all JFS donations, are tax-deductible. Please contact our Development Department (development@jfsannarbor.org or 734-769-0209) with any questions.
