City partnering with World Relief Seattle, Q13 FOX to accept donations of essentials
UPDATE: The charity asks that only new items be donated to avoid contamination.
Seattle and Tacoma are expecting an influx of Afghan refugees following the withdrawal of American forces from Afghanistan.
Donations of dishes, towels, bedding, and other household essentials may be delivered to Lakewood City Hall next week. From Monday, Aug. 23 through Friday, Aug. 27 during business hours (8:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.), donations may be deposited into a drop box inside City Hall.
From the parking lot on the South side of City Hall, signage to your left (West) will instruct visitors where to leave donations.
Q13 FOX is sponsoring the donation drive to collect welcome kits that will be distributed to refugee families through World Relief Seattle. The kits include everyday items such as towels, bedding, shampoo, dishes, and silverware.
