Donate items to a Refugee Family [Donate Now]
As we set up apartments for the use of newly arriving refugee families, we are constantly in need of good used furniture. The basic items most needed are: couches, kitchen tables and chairs, coffee tables, dressers, TV’s and VCR’s. Welcome Kits make this process convenient and empowering!
All donations may be dropped off at 5107 University Blvd. W, Jacksonville, FL, 32216 (behind the Race Track, in the Benco Warehouse). Drop off hours are Monday through Friday 9am–3pm. For more information call 904-448-0733 or email our volunteer coordinator, Silvia Almond.
Donation of Cars
As any resident of Jacksonville knows, cars are vital to a productive life here. As they are getting their first jobs in the U.S., it is necessary for refugees to have a way to get there! If you are interested in donating a car, please call us at 904-448-0733 for more information or email our volunteer coordinator, Silvia Almond.
Donation of Time
The greatest complaint of the refugee is loneliness. They desire and need relationships with Americans. Would you be willing to befriend a new refugee individual or family? You can offer your time to work with an individual family or a special project at our office. Newly arrived refugees need help with transportation, English practice, navigating American systems and just plain friendship. For more information, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Silvia Almond, at 904-448-0733 E-mail- SAlmond@WR.org. Additionally, you can read more about volunteer opportunities here.
