Event Description: 

Asylum seekers often arrive to the U.S. with nothing. In addition to collecting monetary contributions, drives for clothing, nonperishable food, and electronic devices (pre-paid cellphones and phone credits, used laptops, etc.) are all extremely useful. You set the time frame for your drive. 

What You'll Need:

  • Donation collection boxes to display around campus. 
  • Chapter members to advertise your event (social media, flyers). 
  • Chapter members to decorate the donation boxes, place the boxes, monitor the boxes, and retrieve the boxes.

After the Event: Contact our Chapter Coordinator Marie ( to discuss donations raised. Donations (with help of partners) to go through AsylumConnect to directly benefit LGBTQ asylum seekers.
