Drives and In-Kind Donations
You can help our clients directly by purchasing much-needed items off of our Amazon Wish List or by hosting a drive to collect items we need and help keep our costs down. Please note that some items are only needed seasonally, and we can be tight on space, so if you are interested in donating a new or gently used item that is not listed we ask that you check in with us first.
Did you know that donated appreciated securities may allow you to avoid tax liabilities while receiving a tax deduction for your charitable contribution? Please let us know if you are interested in donating stock so that we can discuss next steps.
