Other Ways to Give

Host a Donation Drive

Host a donation drive for refugee families. Your organization, school, or group can help welcome newly-arrived refugee families with essential items needed for their first apartment in the United States. NICE will provide materials for your group to begin collecting donations.
Please note that we will only accept NEW household items from our wish list. Winter coats may be either new or used in excellent condition.

Donate Gently-Used Furniture

Furniture is essential to a house becoming a home for a new American family. Project Redesign collects and reuses furniture to redesign homes for families who lack basic household items. All items should be in good usable condition without need of repair or cleaning. For more information on accepted items as well as the donation process, check out their website.

Donate Used Items

NICE has partnered with ThriftSmart, a locally-run thrift store. For all donations made 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.
