Container Drive

NuDay's containers rely on donations from supporters like you to keep going. In kind donations go to vulnerable individuals (with priority to women and children) experiencing humanitarian crises. Learn more about how you can get involved. 

Donate Needed Items

NuDay's containers support displaced and vulnerable families in areas with humanitarian crises. Many of these families have minimal basic belongings, and with your support, NuDay is working to secure their most human needs to lead dignified and empowered lives.

The following items are in constant high demand:

  • Baby milk

  • Bedding

  • Household furniture and supplies

  • Non-perishable food (rice, lentils, beans)

  • New clothing with tags (used clothing not accepted)

  • New shoes

  • Winter apparel 

  • Camping gear

  • Diapers

  • Hygiene items (especially pads)

  • School supplies

  • Games & toys

  • Stuffed animals

  • Bikes & scooters

  • Sports equipment

  • Crutches, walkers, and wheelchairs

  • Medical supplies

  • Building equipment and tools


Pre-sorting donations into labelled boxes or white, heavy duty plastic bags is much appreciated. Please mark bags and boxes with the donation items - for example, "women's coats."

NuDay recommends a donation of $15 per bag, to ensure that we can continue shipping containers efficiently and getting aid where it is needed most.

We are pausing donation collections until September 2023. In the meantime, we hope that you will support our other programs.

Thank you and happy summer!
