JFS and JFCS Supporting Refugee Shabbat Supply Drive

Refugee Shabbat 2022, which will take place on March 4-5, is a moment for congregations, organizations, and individuals to dedicate a Shabbat experience to refugees and asylum seekers. JFS and Jewish Family and Children’s Service of Minneapolis (JFCS) are supporting refugee resettlement efforts through a supply drive to help make Minnesota home for the more than 1,000 Afghan refugees that have arrived in our state since September.

Please consider bringing new items to JFS or JFCS through Monday, March 7. Items needed include personal hygiene supplies (full size, not travel), baby supplies including diapers, car seats, cleaning items, pots, pans, plates, silverware, towels, bedding and other things needed to set up a full kitchen for a family.

JFS and JFCS, as organizations founded to support refugees more than 110 years ago, continue their commitment to serve refugees through our services. Visit JFCS or JFS to learn more about services available to the community.
