Clothing & Household Items

Unfortunately we are not able to accept clothing or household donations directly at the shelter. You are invited to drop off any used clothing or household items at either of the locations listed below. We have an agreement with both organizations that in return for referring our donation inquiries to them, they provide much needed items to our residents for free during their stay with us. This is a valuable resource for our residents and we appreciate your support!
