I'd be willing to take a family in if needed

Please help. They could use monetary donations, as well a donations of gift cards, furniture, spare rooms, storage space, drivers, etc.

DMV Friends: 2,500 Afghans are expected to arrive and be resettled in the next few weeks. Lutheran Social Services (National Capital Area) has put out a call for those willing to assist in resettlement with their time, donations, and efforts.

7. A quick google brought this up, LL

https://techcrunch.com/2021/08/26/airbnb-to-allow-anyone-not-only-current-hosts-to-sign-up-to-house-afghan-refugees/

When they volunteered last week to house 20,000 souls, it was the greatest news ever!! - and I would tend to think they have a good amount of organizational know-how, right, which is crucial in a situation like this —

GOOD ON YA, LL
