The CBI Social Action Committee has organized the collection of household items to be donated to Jewish Familiy Services in Seattle to distribute to incoming refugees. The refugees they serve are from the following countries: Syria, Afghanistan, Burma, Bhutan, Iran, Ukraine, and East Africa. These individuals will be settled in the Kent or Tacoma areas by JFS. Items are typically in groups of 4 so they can be given as a whole package to one family of 4. There are duplicates of items to have enough for 3 families.
