Afghan Evacuee Support

Floris UMC/Restoration wants to welcome and support Afghan evacuees who have arrived in Virginia. The situation is evolving, but we now have two ways to support individuals and families:

  • Support through trusted community organizations 
  • Donations to organizations working with those at the Dulles Expo Center

Updates

October 28 – We are no longer collecting items for Welcome Home Gift Boxes for Afghan evacuees. Thank you so much for the incredible generosity shown to our new neighbors!
