Lutheran Family Services

The Refugee & Asylee programs are in need of donations in order to provide for newly arriving families. We are not sure when they will arrive but we know there are a few large families in our pipeline that we want to be prepared for. Right now, our biggest needs are: new pillows, kitchen tables and chairs, couches (nothing big/bulky/heavy, no sectionals, or reclining couches), dressers (preferably tall and not long), and shower curtains with liners and rings. We greatly appreciate any and all donations so that we can help these families get on with their new lives here in the US! Contact Jenna Dolecek at 719-314-0737 or jenna.dolecek@lfsrm.org.
