AACI Assists: Rebuilding a Home for Refugees
by  AACI
2 days left

After the events in Afghanistan that occurred in the last year, Afghan families are already arriving and resettling in Silicon Valley, seeking safety and a better life for themselves and for their children. Many of these families left their home country with very few possessions of their own, and we are calling in our community to support these families as they rebuild their lives here in Santa Clara County. 

As we have for almost five decades, AACI welcomes these newest members of our diverse community and stands ready to assist them as they adjust to their new lives. AACI’s Center for Survivors of Torture is the only specialized behavioral health program in Santa Clara County to provide services to newly arrived refugees. We hope you will join us in welcoming our newest neighbors and in doing all that we can to assist them during this transition.


Please note that AACI has a new items only policy. Because these families and individuals are currently going through the process of resettling into a new home and many arrived with only a small bag of their personal belongings, we want to ensure that all donations are new and unused to help them rebuild their lives with dignity.

How do I know which families need support or what items I should donate?

  • You can choose an individual or family to "adopt" by selecting a profile below.
  • By clicking on a profile, you can learn more about the individual or family's background and wish list(s).
  • Please note: we ask that you sponsor a family only if you are able to fulfill the entire family's wish list. For larger families that may have larger wish lists, we encourage you to gather your friends and/or family members to collect and donate items together.

Is there a deadline for when I need to donate by?

  • Certain wish lists have a fulfillment deadline. The deadline will be included in the profile description.

If you have any questions regarding your donation, please reach out to the Resource Development team via email (development@aaci.org).

Book Drive
3 days left

Did you know Dr. Seuss' birthday is on March 2nd? This is why March is deemed National Reading Month. At VOA Illinois, we believe in the power of reading to inspire growth and improve literacy among the children we serve. Reading not only improves literacy, but also impacts empathy, emotional intelligence, and overall academic success. But, access to books is a challenge for many. That's why during the month of March we're hosting a book drive to collect books for the children and youth we serve. Join us in making a difference by purchasing a book bundle and help us inspire the next generation of readers and leaders!

If you're looking to create a team drive, or have any questions about this drive, please contact Katie Rigley at krigley@voail.org. If you'd like to learn more about VOA Illinois and how you can get involved, please contact development@voail.org.

Prepared to Thrive Book Drive '23
3 days left

We know that by third grade, reading proficiency shifts from "learning to read" to "reading to learn." If children cannot read proficiently in third grade, they fall behind.

In Spartanburg County, only 50% of third graders are testing at or above grade reading level. That’s why United Way of the Piedmont is focusing on increasing literacy through our Prepared to Thrive initiative.

And as part of Prepared to Thrive, we are collecting book donations to support first-year teachers as they establish their classroom libraries.

There are several book bundles (1 bundle = 3 books) to choose from that will be distributed to Students in Spartanburg, Cherokee, and Union Counties. Look for the header of the County you'd like to purchase books for, then choose which book bundle(s) you’d like to purchase, and simply add them to your cart.

Your donations will be used by local students right here in United Way of the Piedmont's tri-county footprint as they head into summer break.
