 Refugee Crisis Response Update

The Afghan refugee crisis is ongoing, and we at SLC are continuing to partner with Lutheran Community Services Northwest to do what we can to help those fleeing the turmoil in Afghanistan.



Thank you for your wonderful, generous response to the call for refugee starter kits that we put out last fall! We have been storing the kits while waiting for LCSNW to have the resources to store and distribute them. We hope to coordinate a drop-off in the next couple of weeks!

Meanwhile, the need is ongoing! LCSNW recently put out an    Amazon wishlist of current urgent needs, critical to the wellbeing of individuals and families, such as mattresses, bed frames, blankets, and coats. You can follow this link to order from the list, and the item will be sent to a family as soon as it arrives at the LCSNW office.

Amazon Wish List


The “Reform: Ride for Refugees” is coming back! SLC will once again be the start and finish line of this bike ride and great community event, returning after a three-year hiatus on       August 20, 2022, to benefit refugee aid and resettlement efforts. Stay tuned for more details and ways to help!


If you’d like to be involved in the planning process, email Katie Shaw at:
