Due to the pandemic, we are NOT accepting donations of clothing or home decor. We are still accepting donations of needed items such as household cleaning supplies (disinfectant, hand sanitizer, laundry soap dish soap), personal hygiene supplies (currently low on lotion, body wash, Mane & Tail, Blue Magic), bus passes, and gas cards. We also accept food items like coffee and canned goods.

News & Events
Helping others can provide a new sense of purpose that may have been dwindling as a result of the new way of life we’ve endured in 2020. So in order to breathe new life into 2021 and beyond, it’s time to look outside ourselves and focus on others.
The good you put out into the world will not only benefit the organization you’re volunteering with, but also will leave your family feeling good about the positive work you’ve accomplished together.
People in your everyday life may be struggling much more than you know. So what can you do to help?
