Save a Life with Sleeping Bags, Socks, and Shoes

Housing in Rome for refugees and asylum seekers is extremely limited, causing most to be homeless. As the temperature drops (sometimes to -10C), the need for our guests to have warmth on the streets is urgent. Sleeping bags, as well as thermal socks and shoes can save the life of a homeless refugee or asylum seeker.

Please support the JNRC and help us save the lives of our guests during the colder months by donating a sleeping bag, thermal socks, or shoes. While we prefer new thermal socks, new or used sleeping bags and shoes are accepted.

To purchase new sleeping bags: Amazon Active Era Sleeping Bag | Amazon Viking Trek Sleeping Bag

All donations can be mailed to:
