Other In-Kind Items

We collaborate with many agencies in the community to empower the families we serve with the other items they need. Please see the following list for suggestions on where to take specific in-kind items in the future, knowing that our families will still be able to access these donations, or in some cases, the items are more appropriate for these agencies.

Please note: Starting in 2013, we no longer accept donations of in-kind clothing. We suggest taking clothing donations to Crisis Assistance Ministry (address and phone below).
