Salem for Refugees: Immediate Need

Salem for Refugees is receiving a family of 10 from Afghanistan in the next few days.

Here are some ways you can help:


  • Gift cards: We are collecting $25 Winco or Walmart gift cards to help the family with food and basic supplies for their first few weeks in Salem. Gift cards can be mailed to:


Salem For Refugees - Doug & Anya Holcomb

555 Gaines St. NE Salem, OR 97301

*Include a note that your gift card is for the Afghan family of 10


  • Restart Kits: Restart Kits are bins of new housing supplies that we will use to set up a home for this family. Download this brochure for a list of Restart Kits and instructions for putting them together. If you decide to do a restart kit make sure it can be delivered to Salem, OR and contact Anya to arrange.


  • Airport Welcome: Join us at the Portland Airport to help welcome the family when they first arrive. Contact Anya Holcomb for more information at
