Donate New Household Items
We’ve partnered with the Community Resource Center to receive donations to help provide the home essentials for our new neighbors. Donations can be dropped off to the Community Resource Center, located at 218 Omohundro Place Nashville, TN 37210. Smaller donations can be dropped off anytime (including weekends) in the Donation Drop-Off bin labeled “Afghan Allies” at the front of the building. Larger donations can be dropped off during CRC Office Hours: 8 a.m. – 3 p.m. Monday-Friday. For questions, please call 615-291-6688 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Help Find Housing
Our Afghan allies are arriving in Nashville, and NICE is seeking community support to find both temporary and long-term housing solutions for our new neighbors, especially for larger families.
Donate Used Items
NICE has partnered with ThriftSmart, a locally-run thrift store. For all donations brought on our behalf, they will provide our program with gift cards to their store. This way, donors are still able to indirectly help our program! If you contact ThriftSmart at 615.833.8200, you can set up a date and time for either a donation drop-off or pick-up.
We have also partnered with Tennessee Resettlement Aid (TRA) to collect donations of gently used household items that can be accessed by our Afghan allies.
