Donate Items of Need


Donate Items of Need


Often, when our neighbors who are hungry and homeless 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 are often in need of items in the lists below.


Non-monetary donations are accepted at our Main Campus Donation Center (Kilbourn Avenue and 18th Street) Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.  Upon entering the parking lot off of Kilbourn Ave., veer left, drive down the ramp and make a left turn at the end of the ramp. There you will find a door on your right to the Donation Center, where staff can assist you with your donation and provide a receipt. 

There is also a drop-off bin to receive clothing donations at the True Value Hardware located at 8010 N. 76th Street.

**Please note: Seasonal non-monetary donations (new toys, banquet items, etc.) are still accepted at our Main Campus Visitors' lobby, Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Monetary donations are accepted at our Main Campus Visitors' lobby, Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., online and through the mail.




Some items are distributed more quickly than others, depending on supply levels, weather and numbers of guests. As a result, there is a more desperate need of certain items than others. Can you help? Click HERE to view of list of our most urgently needed items.


We serve hundreds of homeless neighbors each night — and, to stay ready for more who might suddenly come through our doors, we always need items like toiletries, clothing, household supplies and food. Click HERE to check out our list of items needed all year round.


Thank you for any contribution you are able to make!
