Needs List

Updated:  7.1.16

We welcome donations from our community!

Our Free Store needs a steady stream of clean, usable furniture and household items to outfit many individuals and family in need each month.

When considering what to donate, please remember that our clients are often coming out of hard times. Items should be in a gently used condition that you yourself would feel comfortable giving to a friend or neighbor. 

In general, we need household items and cleaning supplies that can be used by a family living in a small apartment. Please note that effective January 1, 2016, we will no longer be accepting clothing or toys. 

We thank you in advance for your support in helping us help our community! 

Donations can be dropped off at our administrative offices at:

151 Good Counsel Drive, Suite 130 (Door #11)
Monday – Friday from 9 am – 4:30 pm.
