Supporting Afghan Neighbors
Supporting Our Afghan Neighbors
Tennessee will be welcoming over 400 Afghans escaping the current crisis in Afghanistan. In Nashville, over 300 Afghans are expected to arrive over the next weeks and months. We want to welcome them with open arms, giving them the support they need to adjust to their new life in America. Find out ways you can welcome our new Afghan Neighbors through volunteering or donating items or funds.
Are you looking for a way to help out but are not sure what to do? There are many ways to volunteer including welcoming families, collecting and organizing donations, providing transportation, interpretation services, and more. Sign up for AMAC's volunteer list and stay updated on opportunities to volunteer.
Want to donate items that the refugees may need? AMAC will be conducting donation drives. The Community Resource Center (CRC) is also collecting donations and has a Amazon Wishlist for Afghan Allies.
Welcoming Nashville Fund
United Way of Greater Nashville is collecting donations to support the new Afghan arrivals. This is a partnership between NICE, Catholic Charities and AMAC.
