GenR DC Metro Back To School Backpack Drive

Photo: IRC

GenR DC Metro is running a Back to School Backpack Drive out the IRC Silver Spring Office. We are doing a big push this month for backpacks and supplies for refugee and immigrant children in the DC Metro area. Our goal is to supply 50 families and we need your support!

To donate to these families in need, please click on the IRC Amazon Wishlist page

In addition to purchasing items through the link above, you can help by:

  • Sharing the drive with your friends and network.
  • Donating items directly to the IRC in Silver Spring. Please schedule a delivery here.
  • Sharing information about local resources for school supplies to Mark Youmans at Mark.Youmans [at] rescue.org.

If you make an online donation through Amazon and would like a tax receipt, please send an email to Mark.Youmans [at] rescue.org with your receipt.
