Our weekly Donations Day is Thursday from 10am-3pm. 

Please bring donations to the front desk. To enter, please press the call button and walk up the steps to the first floor. If you have a large donation, please contact us in advance.

We are currently accepting women’s and children’s new and lightly used clothing that is in season. We appreciate you taking time to ensure that all donated items are in good shape: clean with no stains or tears and all zippers working/buttons in place. Thank you for helping us to serve our guests with dignity and respect!

What items are needed right now?

  • diapers: sizes 5 & 6
  • baby wipes
  • sanitary pads
  • full-size bottles of shampoo & conditioner
  • deodorant
  • full-size bottles of lotion
  • hand & bath towels


Do you accept household items?
Linens—towels, sheets, blankets, and comforters—are always needed. Please mark bedding with the size, if possible. Small kitchen appliances in good repair; pots & pans; dishes; and kitchen utensils/silverware are all very helpful. Many of our guests walk or ride the bus, so small easy-to-carry items are most appreciated. Because we focus on meeting immediate needs, trinkets and home décor are not useful.

What about children’s items?
Due to safety regulations, we are unable to accept car seats. Please call ahead if you have larger baby items you wish to donate. Please: no toys, stuffed animals, puzzles, or books at this time. Please only new bottles, sippy cups, and pacifiers.

Do you accept food?
Because we are not a food pantry, we do not accept donations of food.
