Support through in-kind contributions is appreciated. Due to storage limitations, we accept NEW/UNOPENED items only. We request donations of used clothing, toys, or housewares be given to:
- Goodwill (closest location is 1400 Nike Drive, Waukesha)
- Hope Center (directly across the street at 502 N. East Ave, Waukesha)
In turn, Goodwill and Hope Center provide vouchers for our clients to shop for their needs free of charge.
Non-perishable food items are always needed to stock our food pantry and help provide meals for shelter residents. For the safety of our clients, we have specific guidelines regarding food preparation, so prepared meals and baked goods will only be accepted if coordinated with us in advance.
To learn our current needs, discuss donation of prepared foods, explore hosting a donation drive, or to arrange delivery of in-kind items, please call us at 262.522.3813.
Visit our Amazon Wish List! With one click you can purchase and send any of the items on our wish list directly to our offices. Items most needed are the first to appear on the list.
While this time of year is typically filled with warmth and joy for many of us, our clients often face a season of uncertainty. We especially appreciate the extra community support to provide holiday meals and gifts for those we serve. Check out our 2018 Holiday Wish List as well.
