Donate items from our year-round donation wish list!
Many victims of domestic violence been forced to leave their homes because of abuse, and arrive at our safe havens with just a suitcase. Those who go on to our transitional housing program or homes in the community may lack the financial resources to purchase what they need for their new homes. You can provide clothing, supplies and other essential items they will need to rebuild their lives free from violence- and let them know how much we care.
Please note that all items must be NEW!
