Needs List


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 we will no longer be accept clothing or toys. 

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