This is an opportunity for large groups to adopt a refugee family and independently manage the process of collecting donated items and setting up a household in anticipation of their arrival.  For smaller groups that cannot support the setup of an entire apartment, donation drives can be held to collect themed kits that can be placed in the refugee apartments to supplement other donated items.
