In-Kind Donations

Amazon Wish List

Thank you for your interest in supporting our immigrant and refugee clients as they transition to safety! While Tapestri does not operate a shelter, we help our clients find permanent housing and consequently need many household items to make our clients’ new lives safe and comfortable. 

The easiest way to get helpful items to our clients is through our Amazon wishlist! We keep this list updated in real time with the items that our clients and staff need the most. You can order items from our wish list (using Amazon Smile of course) and ship items directly to our PO box through Amazon. It couldn’t be easier! 

Our wish list is an estimation of what we need though. If you have a question about buying a similar item to what you see on our wish list or wish to donate similar items that you already have, please contact our Development Coordinator Rachel Stanley at rachel@tapestri.org.

Host a Drive 

Groups collecting supplies for our clients helps Tapestri so much! If you are part of an organization that would like to help Tapestri help immigrant survivors of violence, we would love your support! Our current needs are listed HERE on our Amazon wish list. In general, we need women and children’s clothing, school supplies, household linens, toiletries, and nonperishable food items. 

If your office, class, church, mosque, synagogue, or even friend group would like to host a necessities drive for Tapestri, we can conduct a brief kick off at your home or office to educate your group on Tapestri’s work and how donations directly assist our clients. We will work with you to determine the best way to get the collection to our office. Depending on the size of the collection, we can assist with delivery.
