Refugee Welcome to St. Louis Donation Drive

Please join St. Peter’s in extending a warm welcome to new St. Louis neighbors.

Thanks to the reputation of the International Institute of St. Louis, our city has been selected to receive SIV (Special Immigration Visa) refugees. An estimated 1,000 SIV refugees will be coming to the St. Louis area in the coming months and the organization is looking for donations.

Throughout the month of September, St. Peter’s is hosting a donation drive to help our new neighbors set up their new homes. We are looking for NEW ITEMS from the list below! Please, no used items or items not listed. There will be drop-off locations in the narthex and church office. Want to participate but won’t be able to drop off at church? You can order items from this Amazon Wishlist and have them sent to the church – 110N. Warson Road, St. Louis, 63124.

The last day to drop off donations is Sunday, September 26! All items will be delivered to the International Institute of St. Louis the following week. If you would be willing to help with the delivery, please reach out to the church office at  

Helpful tip: Laundry baskets are a great way to deliver your donations, since these will also be given to the families!
