Bridgetown Collection Day

Bridgetown Church is partnering with Refugee Care Collective to gather items for refugee families.

Date: Sunday, June 24th
Times: 10am at Old Laurelhurst Church, 5pm and 7pm at First Baptist Church

Restart kits meet a practical need for newly arriving families, symbolize hope, and communicate the message of welcome better than anything else can. It’s a first step in saying, “You are not alone. We are for you. You are welcome here.”

Select one item from the Welcome Restart Kit below, and bring it to a Bridgetown gathering on Sunday, June 24th. We ask that you purchase new items, as we join together to show radically ordinary hospitality and invite our newest neighbors to make Portland their home.

Welcome Kit List
Teapot and tea
Oregon calendar
Map of Portland area
Scented jar candle with lighter
“Welcome” doormat
Notebook and pens

You are also welcome to bring an item from a different restart kit. Find more information about Refugee Care Collective’s restart kit program here.
