The Village Church in Rancho Santa Fe needs new and gently used items for its Christmas in July event that will help Ukrainian and Afghan families newly arrived in the United States. Items will be collected on Sunday, July 24, between 8:30 a.m. and 12 p.m. in the church parking lot at 6225 Paseo Delicias. Clothing, shoes, toys, furniture and kitchen wares are among the items needed to help support the ongoing work of the Alliance for African Assistance: Safari Seconds Thrift Store in San Diego that assists and supports refugees in adapting to their new homes.

Financial donations are also welcome and donation receipts will be provided upon request. For a complete list of items that will – and won’t – be accepted, visit or email
