For our Voucher Bike Program, we partner with over twenty other area nonprofits to provide refurbished bikes for adults in need, as well as helmets, lights, and locks. For our Free Kids Bikes program, we refurbish donated bicycles and give them to kids 12 and under, to reduce environmental impact and make cycling an affordable choice for families.For these programs to be possible, we rely on donations from the community. Donations of bicycles and parts are always welcome at our shop, as well as financial donations and items from our Amazon wishlist.

Effective September 1, 2021 - we are pausing all donated items except gift cards for the month of September. We are so overwhelmed by the outpouring of support we have received from the Charlottesville community that we need a little time to distribute these items and make space for new contributions. If you are leading a group donation drive, we will gladly accept your contributions. Please reach out to the IRC staff member with whom you have been coordinating. Current Greatest Need: Gift cards (Kroger, Food Lion, Walmart, Amazon). Gift cards give families who have lost everything agency to purchase the things that would make them feel most at home in our community; the clothes they like to wear, their favorite foods, etc. This small gesture goes a long way to helping restore people's dignity and sense of self-worth. We recommend these stores because they are accessible to our families by bus or online.Mail or deliver gift cards to 609 East Market Street, Suite 104 (our office entrance is on 7th Street). Please check back after October 1 for an updated list of our current needs. Thank you for standing with refugees. If you have any questions, please reach us at [email protected].

Since BRIMS doesn't have its own building (we went space for classes at the Charlottesville Waldorf School and they are unable to provide any storage to us) all of BRIMS belongings live in the director's (small) house and in car. This includes an ever-growing musical instrument library, boxes of dance shoes and dance costumes, craft supplies, a sound system, a portable dance floor, books, cds and more. BRIMS could benefit from the use of a climate controlled storage unit.

    International Neighbors currently has a car request list of 107 individuals. Our clients are faced with exorbitant expenses, beginning with repaying the U.S. Government for their family's airline costs. This hefty bill ($9,000 for a refugee family of 9 people to be resettled to America from Uganda) coupled with Charlottesville's outrageous cost of living ($1,200 for a 2 bedroom 1 bath apartment) with only minimum wage employment opportunities makes car ownership almost impossible.
