‘Tis the Season for Giving


Every year around this time, the holidays and colder weather inspire an outpouring of community giving in the form of food drives, festive fundraisers and donations of hats, gloves and blankets to keep our clients warm and dry.

Our Development Team coordinates these gifts and keeps the clothing closet and 1st-floor housing pantry stocked and organized. To keep the generosity flowing smoothly from donor to client, here’s a quick refresher on who to contact and what steps to take for each type of gift...

Clothing or goods donations

Start by reviewing our donation wish list here. Next, contact Ashley McKinnon to confirm that we can accept the gift and to coordinate drop-off. 

Food or clothing drive

If you're collecting food or clothing or know someone who is, coordinate with Ashley McKinnon about how and where to drop it off. 

Fundraiser or event

Interested in hosting a fundraiser or event to benefit our clients? Contact Emily Radawiec with the details.
