Over 100 million people worldwide have been forcibly displaced from their homes ( UNHCR , 2024). The Interfaith Refugee & Immigration Service (IRIS) is a social and legal service agency dedicated to aiding refugees, asylees, migrants and other displaced persons fleeing persecution.
This year, IRIS will be resettling more refugee families and individuals than we have ever before. Involvement from established community members broadens the quality of support newcomers receive. Newcomers have many new social, economic, and environmental factors to navigate. Once our refugee clients arrive, assistance is often needed to acquire essential household items to make the transition easier. IRIS can strengthen our services with flexible and reliable volunteers to fill the position of Refugee Donation Delivery Volunteer .

The IRIS Refugee Donation Delivery Volunteer will be supporting clients in acquiring the needed furniture/goods to make their new housing a functional, comfortable home. We need able-bodied drivers who can pick up and deliver donations to clients’ homes. This role is on an as-needed basis.

The main activities of the Refugee Donation Delivery Volunteer may include:

  • Communicating with IRIS’s Volunteer Coordinator about needed donations
  • Picking up donations from around the Los Angeles area
  • Transporting donations to clients homes and/or the IRIS office
  • Locating other sources of donations that clients need

IRIS Clients must reside within a 100-mile radius of the IRIS office. Volunteers will work with the Volunteer Coordinator to establish their boundaries for driving distance.

IRIS does not have a vehicle. Volunteers are asked to use their own vehicle and use their own insurance or help coordinate donations for rental vehicles cost.
