Due to Covid-19 we are limited in what we can accept right now. We are able to take brand new items only. If you wish to help refugees, you can also give a cash donation or Gift Card. These are greatly appreciated by the newcomers.
New items include cleaning products, of course. Maybe you are part of a group that would like to put together a bucket of cleaning supplies. That would be so helpful to us! If you can find non-toxic items, that’s preferred because clients can’t always read the “Poison” information in English.
Items we are very low on:
Products for natural/textured hair – shampoo, products for hydrating and detangling; Shea butter or coconut butter leave-in conditioner; Castor oil moisturizing spray. Examples are products by Cantu and Urban Hydration.
Home Tool Kit – new or used tools
Examples of what a kit might contain: hammer, nails, screwdrivers, duct tape, pliers, utility knife, tape measure, wrench. A container for the tools, such as a tool box, plastic box or other. Kits do not need to contain all these items. Or you might have additional ideas of things that are handy.
Home First Aid Kit – donate a pre-made first aid kit from a company or put together your own.
Examples of what a kit might contain: band-aids of various sizes, antiseptic spray or alcohol wipes; hydrocortisone cream for itching; gauze pads and adhesive tape; ace bandage; tweezers; burn gel; Ibuprofen and/or Tylenol (adult or child); thermometer sleeves (we have thermometers but not sleeves). Kits do not need to have all these items.
Thanks again to all our generous donors. We couldn’t do it without you.
