Urgent Afghan Refugee Relief

Help us resettle Afghan Refugees

We are excited to announce that our partnership with Samaritan's Purse has led to us being approved as a resettlement sponsor. Our goal is to continue to resettle as many families as God allows. Below is information about how you can partner with us in this incredible work that God has given to us. We will welcome our first family to the Dubuque community at the end of January.


At this time we are looking for certain items to help with the transition. If you or your organization would like to partner with us you can give financially below or contact us.


All giving will be held in a fund used to help with the resettlement of Afghan Refugees.

Give Financially

In Kind Donations

We are collecting a limited amount furniture and household items that are good quality.


We are asking for gift certificates for most items of clothing, as we do not have the space nor capacity to sort through all kinds of clothing. We will consider some items like very gently used heavy sweaters and winter jackets. We recommend gift cards from: Kohls, TJ Maxx, Old Navy, Wal-Mart, and Target.


Please see below for a list of the many kits we are seeking for specific groups of things that are both necessary to a household and will help create home. Putting together a kit is a great way for you, your family, your faith or civic group, your school or your work place to welcome our new neighbors.


Please contact the Donations Committee to donate household goods or furniture:  office@newlifedbq.com


All items for donation should be new or very gently used
