Build A Restart Kit
Refugee families often arrive in Oregon with few possessions, and have to quickly build their lives again. Restart Kits are filled with essential household items including pots & pans, bathroom towels, and cleaning supplies, and communicate a message of welcome better than anything else initially can.
It’s a first step in saying, “You are not alone. We are for you. You are welcome here.”

Gather Individual Items
Build, Write, Drop-Off
If you're building a Restart Kit, include the items in a plastic tub or box that can close, and label the top of the container with the kit name. Consider including a handwritten and unsealed welcome note after reading our Welcome Note Guidelines.
Drop off Restart Kits or individual items at our next Collection Event, or schedule a separate drop-off time by emailing us here.
