Donate items to refugees affected by COVID-19

Last updated 

As of Monday, March 23, 2020 the IRC’s office in Silver Spring is closed to protect the health of clients, partners, staff and the community during the coronavirus pandemic. As a result, the IRC is not accepting in-kind donations at our Silver Spring office. 

How to Help

1. Purchase items from our COVID-19 Emergency Kits. The IRC creates these kits based on requests from individual families we serve. They are listed below in order with our must vulnerable clients as the highest priority. For shipping , select "International Rescue Committee's Gift Registry Address" at checkout.

COVID-19 Emergency Kit (FA)

COVID-19 Emergency Kit (MG)

COVID-19 Emergency Kit (NP)

COVID-19 Emergency Kit (LT)

2. Purchase a Visa gift card from our Amazon Wishlist. Staff will send these gift cards to clients who can use them to purchase food, cell phone credit, or other necessities. Many clients are losing their jobs as the economy grinds to a halt and need additional support as they navigate this crisis.
