Refugee Outreach Collective at CWRU (ROC@CWRU Undergrad) is hosting their first annual fall donation drive from Oct 9-20! Items will be donated to the U.S. Committee of Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI), a local refugee resettlement agency that has been welcoming newcomers to Cleveland since 1916.
There will be two donation boxes for the drive. One will be located in the atrium of Thwing Center, while the other will be located in suite 160 of the Health Education Campus (HEC). Items that can be donated include the following (NOTE: These items should be new or gently used. Our focus is on dignity. All of these items are needed, the bolded ones are the most urgent needs which USCRI is almost entirely out of):
Kitchen: can openers, spatulas, wooden spoons, measuring cups, sieves, graters, cutting boards, mixing bowls (metal or glass), flatware trays, complete sets of flatware, sponges, glasses, cups, strainers, serving bowls, platters, kitchen towels, oven mitts, large frying pans, stock pots, sauce pans, large baking dishes
Bedroom: blankets, comforters, sheet sets and mattress pads (full and twin), pillows, throws
