How You Can Donate

Our community/nation/world is facing a mounting immigration problem.  Locally, AIDNW offers emotional support to the 1500 immigrants detained in Tacoma and a warm welcome and transitional support when they are released.
Our monthly operation costs are over $10,000 and we rely heavily on individual contributions.

We need YOUR help to show immigrants that we care!

   Welcome Center Wish List

  • Men’s warm and waterproof jackets, hats and gloves. These need to be clean and in good condition. Used jackets are fine but they need to be something that a young person would feel good wearing. Most of those released are slender, so medium sizes are preferred.
  • Individually wrapped bags of chips, peanut butter or cheese crackers, nuts, dried fruit, or cookies
  • Bottled water (individual size)
  • Canned soda
  • Fresh fruit such as apples, oranges (no more than one bag as they don’t keep well)
  • Travel size deodorant, shampoo, conditioner, and soap for travel packs

Many of these items–and more–can be found on our Amazon Wish List
