Refugee Services Support Needed

published 6/1/2021

The Minnesota Council of Churches' Refugee Services is looking ahead with hope and anticipation and preparing to begin welcoming more people and families to Minnesota in the months to come in light of President Biden's revised refugee admissions numbers.

Would you consider how you might help Refugee Services rebuild our programs and support? Increased amounts of donated household items, church co-sponsors, and connections to affordable housing are urgently needed.

If you would, take a moment to let us know how you might be willing to help by emailing rsvolunteers@mnchurches. Here are a few ideas:

  • Send an email introduction to the person in your church who coordinates donation drives
  • Connect us with the person at your church who arranges adult forums for an in-person or virtual presentation
  • Decide that you could donate a couple of new pillows (or item of your choice) each month to Refugee Services
Our greatest need right now is for new standard size bed pillows. We are also in need of: liquid hand soap pumps, deodorant – both men’s and women’s, bar soap, men’s shaving cream, men’s disposable razors, toothpaste, and electric alarm clocks. To arrange a drop-off, please email
