Donate Your Stuff

Donating seasonal clothing, food, bath towels, toiletries, over-the-counter medicine, and other items serves as a practical, useful ministry to the hurting and the homeless.

We ask that all items be clean and in reasonably good condition. Broken, torn, or non-functioning items will not be accepted.
