Welcome Basket

When refugees arrive in Boston we like to provide them with a welcome basket of basic household goods necessary for day to day life. This list is a basic outline of what to include in a basket. If you are interested in donating a welcome basket to an arriving family, please email us at riac@riacboston.org or call our Boston office at 617-238-2430.
