Through the JNRC donation drive campaign, we intend to promote the reuse of books and recyclable materials, as well as used (or new) items in good condition that would go to waste otherwise. Several companies around Rome specialize in providing housing services to international students or young professionals. At the end of each session there are often large amounts of books, toiletries, and clothing left behind by the residents – goods that the Joel Nafuma Refugee Center would gladly accept on our guests’ behalf.
We welcome donations of any items in good condition , especially clothing and toiletries for men. The complete list of preferred items can be found in the “Wish List” tab, while goods for which there is urgent need are listed in the Donation Drive Pamphlet.
If your company is keen to support the JNRC donation drive, or you would like more information, please e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
