Welcome to America: Giving Refugees New Hope with Household Goods
There are many ways to volunteer and make a difference in your community. One YSA ward in Phoenix, Arizona, decided to spend a Saturday volunteering with a local nonprofit called The Welcome to America Project. Every week this nonprofit identifies several local refugee families in need of household items and gathers donations from the community. Then on Saturdays, local volunteers help move and set up these items in the homes of refugee families. The YSA Union Hills Ward was able to meet a young family from Burma and assist them in their home.
