The International Rescue Committee provides opportunities for refugees to thrive in America. Each year, thousands of refugees are invited by the U.S. government to seek safety and freedom. Forced to flee conflict or persecution, many have survived for years against incredible odds. They often step off the plane with few belongings. The following donations help provide a refugee family with the essentials to start their new lives in the Denver-metro area. 

Thank you for your interest in supporting the IRC in Denver.  All in-kind donations can be dropped off at the IRC in Denver's Donation Warehouse open from 9am to 5pm Mondays through Fridays (closed holidays),  and located at 7808 Cherry Creek South Drive, Unit 203, Denver, CO 80231.
