Help provide welcome basket supplies for our refugee neighbors at Project Worthmore. Items are stored in Project Worthmore’s pantry and are given to refugees who come through their office. Some of the refugees have recently arrived in Denver and others have been here for a while but just need a little extra help.

Most of the items on the list cannot be purchased with government assistance programs like SNAP or WIC, so these donated items help refugees with their monthly costs as they work toward self-sufficiency.

Date: December 19

Items must be dropped off at Project Worthmore’s offices ON Tuesday, December 19, between 9am-5pm.

Options:

  • Option #1: Buy individual items from list below
  • Option #2: Purchase all items from list below and make a complete welcome basket

Cost:
