Backpacks and spiral notebooks needed for new refugee students

Catholic Charities Refugee Resettlement Program will be welcoming several new refugee families this month, and more in the coming months, from Bhutan, Burma, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. We are in need of new, or slightly used, backpacks and spiral notebooks (college ruled, if possible) for ages 5 on up to 18 as they begin their education in the United States. Just a note: The schools prefer regular sized backpacks for the young ones (K - 3rd grade) so the small backpacks aren't necessary.

Please contact: Erin Carkner at 971-222-1883 x 222 or by email at [email protected] if you would like more information. We can arrange a pickup, or you can drop the backpacks/notebooks off at the Catholic Charities Refugee Resettlement office at: 1910 SE 11th Ave. #2, Portland, OR 97214

Thank you for your support of these children, and Happy New Year!
