Donations Welcome!

Last updated 

Prior to their arrival in Wichita, the IRC must set up a household for newly arriving refugees that includes essential items. One way community members and organizations can contribute is to donate these household goods which allows clients to utilize their limited resettlement funds on pressing needs, such as rent and utilities, as they work towards self-sufficiency.

Your support through cash or in-kind donations are welcome and greatly appreciated not only by the IRC, but by the clients who benefit.  There are many ways you can donate and show your support for newcomers in our community. Monetary donations, ordering from our Amazon Wish List to send items directly to our office, or purchasing the Welcome Kits listed below are just some of the ways you can get involved. 

For more questions about donating, please email VolunteerKS [at] Rescue.org or call 316-361-2792.
