Welcoming Afghans to St. Louis


The International Institute is grateful for the contributions from communities around St. Louis. They are overwhelmed by this generosity and currently need volunteers to help sort recent gifts from everyone. The Institute asks that future donations of goods not be dropped off at their location until September 9 to allow for sorting, organizing, and assessing future items most needed.


You can help by:

  1. Signing up to volunteer for sorting current items. Shift times are listed on a link at Click on the Afghan SIVs banner for further information. The volunteer slots can be found at
  2. Donating: Visa gift cards, gas cards, gift cars for Aldi’s, Target, Schnucks, Walmart, Jay’s International, and monetary gifts to the International Institute.
  3. Continue saving items household items as International Institute gears up for current and arriving Afghans. Items can be placed in the church lobby and marked for later delivery to the Institute.


Your support will be greatly appreciated.
