Welcome Kits

This year, World Relief Memphis will resettle hundreds of refugees to the area. These families have fled persecution in their home country and are beginning new lives here in the U.S. We invite you to join us in welcoming them to their new homes by building refugee Welcome Kits. Choose the various kits that you wish to purchase from Amazon and the items will be shipped directly to a new refugee family via our office.

  • Step 1. Click on the kit or kits you’d like to purchase
  • Step 2. Add each item in the wish list to your cart
  • Step 3. Check out as usual, and when it prompts you for a shipping address, make sure to choose World Relief Memphis' Gift Registry Address to have items shipped directly to our office at 3340 Poplar Avenue Suite 222, Memphis, Tennessee 38111

Do you have furniture or household items in your possession that you would like to donate? We accept items at our office on Mondays from 10-4PM. If you will pull around to the back of the building near the box truck, we will be happy to help unload. World Relief can arrange for a pickup of items such as couches, chairs, dining tables, and small shelving units. If you would like to schedule a pickup, please contact Megan Bailey at 901.341.0222 or mbailey@wr.org. For a list of items needed, see the kit links below.
