Nesting  A HOME 

for refugees

"You must love [the immigrant] as yourself, because you were immigrants in the land of Egypt; I am the Lord your God."
                                                                                        - Leviticus 19:24

As we seek to love our neighbors near and far,  we are partnering with the African Community Center and Deer Park United Methodist Church to Nest-A-Home for a newly-arrived refugee family settling in the Denver area.

Nesting a Home involves collecting all the initial furnishings and household items that a family will need as they settle into their new home in the USA. At UMCE, we are coordinating the collection of items to ensure that when a refugee family arrives, they have a safe, secure, and fully stocked home in which to begin their new lives.

Our next Nest-A-Home opportunity is happening now! You can sign up to donate items or give your time helping transport items at the list you'll find here (or click on the button below). All items should be new or gently used. The date to drop off items at UMCE is Sunday, April 16 between 11 am and 1 pm.

You can also make a financial contribution which will go toward purchasing items for the home that have not been donated and/or to make a financial contribution to the African Community Center. You can use your debit or credit card to make a financial gift here (or using the button below) and select the fund for "Nesting Project" on the dropdown list of funds when you make your contribution. If you prefer, you can mail a check to the church (3757 Ponderosa Drive Evergreen, CO 80439). Please put "Nesting Project" in the memo line of your check.
