5 Ways to Support Refugees on #GivingTuesday

This Giving Tuesday, you can give the gift of a warm welcome to refugee families in Indiana. Here are 5 ways to show your love and support on Dec. 3 and all year long.

1. Become a monthly donor.

Your gift of $10, $25, or $50 every month adds up to a big impact for refugee families. Your on-going financial support provides vital services such as mental health counseling, employment support, and youth and family case management. Prefer to make a one-time donation? You can do that too! Donate now.

2. Show your support with a Refugees Welcome t-shirt.

Show your support with a “Refugees Welcome Here” t-shirt. We have adult, youth, and toddler sizes.  All shirts are $20 each + $5 shipping if you’d like us to mail your order. You can purchase your shirts here.

3. Donate personal and household items for a refugee family.

Refugees arrive with only what they can carry. You can help. Our biggest needs right now are:

1) Winter coats, hats, gloves, socks, boots, and comforters/blankets.
2) Toiletries (full size bottles)
3) Cleaning supplies
4) Diapers size 4-6
5) Lamps, light bulbs, sheet sets (full/twin), pots and pans

See our full list of acceptable items here. You can drop off donations at our office on Fridays between 11 am – 4 pm or ship them via our Amazon Wish List or your favorite store. 

4. Join us at an upcoming event or host your own fundraiser

Have fun and support Exodus at the same time! Here are a few events benefiting Exodus in December:

Dec. 4: Raise your glass at Cocktails and a Cause
Dec. 6: Join us for lunch at Duos Kitchen for the Warm Winter Welcome
Dec. 6: Shop for local art at HeArt for a Cause 2019

5. Volunteer your time and talents.

Volunteers mentor families, teach English, assist with office work, organize donations, and more! Our next volunteer orientation will be in January 2020. Learn more about available opportunities and read the stories of volunteers Kofi and Jessica.
