We are thankful to our in-kind donors who donate their goods to the refugee community in the Greenville, Spartanburg, and upstate communities.
Please be considerate and thoughtful when donating by remembering that these items should be in good, working and wearable condition.
Rule of thumb: If an item is in a condition that you would not use or wear, then refugees and newcomers would not use or wear the item either. We do not accept ripped, stained, overly-used, broken or dirty items. Nice items bring dignity to our clients, and communicate to them that they are important and worthy. Check out this article for one perspective on this.
We are only accepting donations that are listed on this page. If you do not see the items you would like to donate listed below, please donate them to other organizations where they would be put to better use!
