Welcome to Miry's List - a community of volunteers that uses crowdsourcing and social media to connect people like you, who want to help, with new refugee families with urgent needs to help them start their new lives as our neighbors in Southern California.
We start by welcoming each family to their home - typically a barely furnished (or completely unfurnished) apartment - and then work together with a translator to create a list of items they need most urgently. The lists are published as Amazon Wishlists and shared here at miryslist.org so our generous donors can purchase specific items for specific families, who will receive them directly. Each family has unique needs - many with small children, elderly grandparents or members with disabilities. It's our aim to help them all with an open heart and welcoming arms.
We also accept direct donations of furniture and other large items, and have a regular schedule of special events.
