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) in Syria and Lebanon. Learn more about how you can get involved. 

Donate Needed Items

NuDay's containers support displaced families inside Syria, as well as vulnerable families and Syrian refugees in Lebanon. 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 and like-new clothing 

  • 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."

Join NuDay at our Derry, NH warehouse for a Container Day!


You'll get to help sort donations, packing them into boxes, or loading the container, all while surrounded by an awesome community and sharing a delicious meal. 

Each container costs $6,500 to pack and ship from our New Hampshire and Maine warehouses to Syria. Your support goes towards packing supplies, trucking costs, and a volunteer meal that is provided at each Container Day.
