Help Afghan Refugees Move Into New Homes
Please visit the new page to apply.
Keeping Our Promise is a small group of volunteers dedicated to helping Afghan refugees who have served alongside US military forces resettle here in the Bay Area. These people are on Special Immigrant Visas (SIVs) which allow them to come to the US when their lives are threatened because of their work with US military or US government or NATO forces.
As part of the Afghan Coalition, our missions is to help these brave men and women and their families feel at home after they have fled Afghanistan due to these threats.
Many of these families and refugees have been at interim housing on military bases since the fall of Kabul a few months ago and just now are being released to the United States. We need strong volunteers to help with physically moving furniture, household goods, and other necessities.
Virtually all of the refugees arrive here with very little in the way of goods, and while there are many generous donors in the bay area, physically moving things is challenging. Help these brave men and women settle into their new lives with a little bit of your time and sweat!
**You must have a truck or large SUV or have access to one**
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
