Waterloo Region has set up a new website in support of welcoming the Syrian refugees. There is a number of resources for citizens wishing to help including through donations of warm clothing, food, household items and money.
Refugee families need lots of "starter kit" items for their homes.
Many refugee families have just moved into or will be moving into homes in Waterloo Region in the coming months. There is a new effort to better coordinate donations and gather items that we know are of immediate need. “Starter kits” should be made up in quantities appropriate for four people.
