Year-round Assistance

Make An In-Kind Donation

YMCA International Services resettles refugees from all around the world that are forced to flee their home countries because of fear of persecution or death. As we continually set up apartments for newly-arriving refugee families, we are always in need of used furniture in good condition.

Although we do not have space available to accept all large donations, please consider making a donation of any of the following items:

  • Furniture; new and used (beds, dressers, tables, chairs, desks, couches, etc.)
  • Household items (dishes, silverware, pots and pans)
  • Cleaning supplies; newly purchased
  • Towels, washcloths, and linens
  • Small appliances
  • Baby items (strollers, diapers, clothing, etc.)
  • ESL supplies (lined paper, dictionaries, pencils and candy)
  • Large appliances (refrigerators, washers, dryers, etc.)

Unfortunately, at this time we cannot accept:

  • Large appliances (refrigerators, washers, dryers, etc.)
  • Queen and King size beds
