Household Donations

Exodus’ physical office remains closed to reduce the risk of virus transmissions in the midst of concerns around COVID-19, and we are accepting donation drop-offs by appointment only. To make an appointment to drop off a donation, please contact Tom at ttuttle@exodusrefugee.org.

You can also purchase items from our Amazon Wish List or make a financial gift. 

An update about Afghan Refugees

Right now, Exodus is receiving a high volume of calls and emails about the evacuation in Afghanistan, and how we can help Afghan refugees who may be resettled here in Central Indiana.

While Exodus is preparing to welcome refugees to our community, our work will happen as the “next step” after refugees are processed at military bases throughout the country, including Camp Atterbury.  To donate directly to Camp Atterbury, you can contact the National Guard at 317-247-3559, or you can reach out to Team Rubicon.

Please have patience as we work to respond to your emails and phone calls!  We are returning all messages as quickly as possible.

Please note that we do not accept donations of clothing.
