Donate Items of Need
Often, when hungry and homeless neighbors arrive at our door, all they own are the clothes they’re wearing. Thanks to donations from friends like you, we’re usually able to meet their physical needs right on the spot. But our shelves aren’t always full, and we always need the items in the list below.
Donations are accepted at our Kilbourn Ave. entrance Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. There are also drop-off bins that can receive clothing located at the Piggly Wiggly on 2201 E. Rawson Ave., True Value Hardware located at 8010 N. 76th Street and the Richfield Truck Stop (Exxon) at exit 57 on the west side of I41/45.
