Things We Need

Requested Donations from the Emergency Shelter

Thank you for your help and support!

Cultural sensitivity is greatly appreciated when purchasing personal care & hair products, clothing items, and toys as we serve a diverse population. Gift Cards are always at the top of our list because they allow a client to choose the items she needs for herself and her family.

Gift Cards to ShopRite, Acme, Target, Walmart, and gas stations are most helpful. We also need Gift Cards to AC Moore’s, Michael’s, Joann’s Fabrics, and Dollar Tree.

As much as every donation is greatly appreciated, space is a limiting factor. We only accept new clothing and shoes.

Contact Althea at (609) 394-9000 for additional information or to schedule an in-kind donation drop-off. You can drop off donations at 1530 Brunswick Ave in Lawrenceville.
