The opportunities and the options for giving are numerous for donors interested in giving items, and every item received goes to good use. From new to used, programs can utilize nearly anything donated to the agency. We are happy to make arrangements to pick up donated items when possible. For an idea of items that can be used through agency programs, please see the list below.
Adopt-A-Family Christmas - items for the gift room, including toys, household items and clothing; supplies for wrapping gifts; food items; hygiene items; and cleaning supplies. All items donated to the Adopt-A-Family should be new, as they are given as gifts for the holiday.
Fab-U-Less Finds Thrift Store - new and gently used clothing and household items, including kitchenware, decor items, linens, toys, furniture, and appliances. We are happy to pick up yard sale leftovers or take items you can no longer use when you do your Spring or Fall cleaning.
Diaper Depot - diapers and wipes are always needed; the program also supplies seniors with incontinence supplies and accepts these donated items as well. Donated diapers do not need to be full packages, as they are sorted and combined with other donations to provide emergency supplies to families.
Lions Club Eyeglasses - used eyeglasses can be donated to the eyeglasses program; used hearing aids can also be processed through the Lions Club program. These items are recycled through a national program that helps to reduce waste and recycle usable components.
Soles for Christ shoe program - new tennis shoes in all sizes, from toddler to adult, can be used for this program; new socks are also accepted. These shoes are sometimes the only new thing students have for the school year. It also ensures they can fully participate in school activities.
Seasonal Services - fans, space heaters and air conditioning units can all be used for this program. Both new and used items are accepted.
