Bicycle and Computer Donations

We need your help to share bicycles so that more refugees can become more self-sufficient more quickly. Donate your used bicycle, used pump and u-lock or a new helmet and new bicycle. Additionally, if you have the expertise and know-how to repair bicycles, you can come to our warehouse and pick up bicycles to repair at your house.  Click here for more information!

Computers enable refugees to more easily learn English, search for jobs, and utilize career building resources.  We need donations of computers, laptops, monitors, keyboards and other computer accessories. Consider looking beyond your own home office and try collecting computers and computer accessories in your neighborhood, church or place of work.  Additionally, if you have the skills to repair and program computers, we need your help!  Click here for more information!

Donations of bicycles, computers and other warehouse needs are now being accepted at the WTAP Warehouse on T/W/TH/SA 8 AM to 11 AM.

WTAP Hats!

WTAP is now selling hats! Choose between a white or blue-gray hat, for just $25. Order your hat by emailing operations.director@wtap.org. Pre-ordered hats can be picked up at the warehouse! Live out of town? No problem, we can ship for $8 to anywhere in the country!

Arizona Tax Credit

Arizona provides a tax credit for individuals who make contributions to Qualifying Charitable Organizations (QCO). The Welcome to America Project qualifies as a QCO. Individuals can give up to $800 if married and filing jointly, or up to $400 as an individual. The tax credit reduces the state taxes owed, dollar-for-dollar as a credit. These monies normally paid to the state can instead be donated to WTAP and our mission.

The deadline is April 15, 2021.  Click here for more information on contributions to QCOs.  Click here to donate to WTAP!

OUR MISSION STATEMENT

The Welcome to America Project celebrates refugees and accelerates their self-sufficiency by providing personal, meaningful welcomes and continued connections. We share transportation, technology and transformational resources to enhance success, so that refugees do not just resettle in our country, they find community and flourish. We create impacts that last a lifetime for the refugees as well as the volunteers who serve.

We offer a simple welcoming gesture, but it is one that lasts a lifetime.
