Westside Women’s Event

Westside: A Jesus Church is partnering with Refugee Care Collective to gather items for refugee families.

Date: Thursday, September 13th
Time: 7pm at Westside

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 Personal Care Kit below, and bring it to the Westside Women’s Event on Thursday, September 13th. We ask that you purchase a new item, as we join together to show radically ordinary hospitality and invite our newest neighbors to make Portland their home.
