Currently, there are over 6,600 refugees placed at Camp Atterbury just East of Bloomington, IN.  Of those 6,600, the majority are under the age of 14 and many of them are babies and toddlers. This is an amazing opportunity for us as the Church to respond to a global crisis locally. This is just the start, as many are being resettled in Fort Wayne and we want to be the hands and feet of Christ to them.

Below is a list of items needed. You can either bring these items to the Main, Auburn or Garrett Campuses. We will have collection stations set up. Or you can use the Amazon Wishlist link at the bottom of the page and the items will be sent automatically. Thank you for your care and generosity.

We will be collecting items from Thursday, November 4 - Sunday, November 28
