Donate

The reasons individuals make charitable donations can be as varied as the donors themselves. Some give because they have a personal commitment to the cause – they may know a relative, friend, or employee who has been the survivor of domestic violence. They may give because of a more general desire to assist those in need who are less fortunate than themselves – to share the good fortune they have in life. Still others give not because they have great personal wealth, but because they have a compassionate heart and it feels good to help others.
 
We are often asked “What does your shelter need?” The best answer is to look at the items you use everyday in your home. That is what we need. Due to the number of individuals who enter the emergency shelter there are some items that we always need to replenish every month. We hope the following wish list will give you an idea of the items you could donate.
