Gift Cards for Afghan Refugees

Large numbers of Afghan refugees will pass through our area en route to other locations over the coming weeks as they are resettled by Lutheran Services. They were not permitted to carry luggage and as a result have nothing. Olam Tikvah is proud to join the Northern Virginia interfaith efforts to support Afghan refugees. We are collecting gift cards to help families get the things they need. Please donate gift cards from: Target, Walmart, Visa, Giant, Harris Teeter, Safeway, or Aldi
