In the last year, the IRC in San Jose has resettled nearly 500 refugees from Afghanistan, Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Iran, Iraq, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria, and Ukraine. Please join us in welcoming them from harm to home this winter by helping us fulfill some of their wish lists.



  1. With your support, we are seeking to fulfill newly arrived refugee family wish lists this winter season. Donors are welcome to purchase select items, an entire wish list, or multiple wish lists. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law. 
  2. Wish lists can be found at the bottom of this page and will be live until January 30, 2022. We are utilizing Things To Get Me for this project as it allowed the most flexibility in things our beneficiaries could request.
  3. If you fulfill any request(s) or intend on fulfilling specific requests, please "reserve" the item(s) so that duplicates are not purchased. If you "reserve" an item and are unable to fulfill, please "unreserve" the item. 
  4. Items should be delivered to the IRC San Jose office or shipped to:
    • Winter Welcome - 1210 S. Bascom Ave STE 227, San Jose, CA 95128
    • Please include the name of the wish list your donated items are for (e.g Wish List 01), so your gift goes to its intended recipient
  5. Please send copies of purchase receipts to [email protected]. This will allow us to:
    • Know which items to expect and when to expect them
    • Provide you with an accurate donation receipt

If you have any questions, please contact [email protected].
