Ten Thousand Villages Now Accepting IIB Donations

Ten Thousand Villages, Buffalo, wants to help welcome our newest neighbors in Western New York by accepting donations to support our important work of resettling local refugees as they start their new lives.

Ten Thousand Villages will accept donations of basic household items and winter clothing, including jackets, gloves, and hats. Other items needed include bathroom cleaner, 13-gallon trash bags, new twin or full-size blankets and linen, and cookware. Donations will go a long way toward supporting our work in helping refugee clients settle into the community as seamlessly as possible.
