In-Kind Donation Guidelines:

Bridge Refugee Services greatly appreciates donations of needed items for refugees’ homes. Donations for their new homes helps refugees by creating a warm and welcoming home that fosters feelings of safety, and demonstrates the local community’s values. Due to our limited storage space, please contact us before bringing donations to the office to confirm that we have need and space for your donations. It may be more beneficial to donate home items to KARM in our name. Please also note that in some categories, we can only accept new items; in all other cases, please bring new, like new, or gently used items that will reflect the dignity and care we want to share with refugee families.

Please e-mail the Volunteer Manager for donations to the Knoxville office,  and Jennifer Croxall for the Chattanooga office.
