WHAT TO DONATE?

Please be considerate and thoughtful when donating by remembering that these items should be in good, working/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.  If you do not see the items you would like to donate listed below, we do not accept it. Consider donating the item to other organizations in the area.

Note: all of the items listed below are items that WRD accepts for donations at any time. If you’re interested in learning more about our specific donations needs (both immediate and ongoing), refer to the sidebar.
