In-Kind Donations

Many refugees arrive in the United States with very few material goods. Our in-kind donation closet at the Community Center is a place they can always come, no questions asked, for donated items to help them make a home in Missoula. These lists reflect the most urgent needs of families as well as items that are always gratefully received by community members. Please check our social media pages for updated information, too.

We ask that all donated items be in good condition in order to maintain the dignity of clients. That means no stains, large tears, or excessive animal fur.
