The IRC in Silver Spring is committed to bringing our refugee clients from harm to home. As part of that commitment, we provide them with basic necessities – such as clothing and household items they need to start rebuilding their lives here.
To do this, the IRC relies on donated items from community partners that are passed onto our clients free of charge.
If delivery is a challenge, please consider purchasing needed items through our Amazon Wish List, which can found at this link.
• Office or storage space
• Financial Donations (Donate)
• Gift Cards-(Target and Walmart most desired)-to allow clients to purchase food, clothing, and other critical items.
The IRC in Silver Spring has limited space to store in-kind goods for refugees coming into the country in 2017. If you are interested in donating storage space to help hold these items for future refugee families, please email Mark.Youmans [at] rescue.org with the subject line “Storage Space.”
Please consider fundraising for refugees in the DC Metro area. Receive IRC materials for your fundraiser, sign up to fundraise here.
