WTAP is collecting $20 gift cards from Food City, and Walmart, two stores near refugee apartments, to share with refugee families to supplement meals. We cannot dine physically with the families, but we can lift spirits and make certain families are fed for a day. If you’d like to “share a meal with the Refugee family”, click here to donate online (note your donation is to “Share a Meal”) or send Food City or Walmart gift cards to us at: The Welcome to America Project, 1711 W. University Dr. #158, Tempe, AZ 85281.
WTAP Office and Warehouse are closed until June 30th. All Volunteer Shifts are postponed and will be reevaluated after June 30th.

While we cannot welcome now, we want to do so in the future. Bigger, better and more focussed on current needs. In times of crisis, vulnerable communities are hit hardest. Our welcomes, clothing closets, bike and computer partnerships, school partnerships will remain pivotal and accelerating to refugee integration. And WTAP will increase our presence in new ways to help our refugee neighbors regain traction and reestablish their paths to self sufficiency. We need your help more now than ever to fund these important efforts.
WTAP Office and Warehouse are closed until June 30th, and we are not accepting household goods donations or doing furniture pick ups at this time. Please check back for updates.
The Welcome to America Project celebrates refugees and accelerates their self-sufficiency by providing personal, meaningful welcomes and continued connections. We share transportation, technology and transformational resources to enhance success, so that refugees do not just resettle in our country, they find community and flourish. We create impacts that last a lifetime for the refugees as well as the volunteers who serve.
We offer a simple welcoming gesture, but it is one that lasts a lifetime.
