In-Kind Donations

COVID-19 Update:

During this unprecedented time of uncertainty, Heading Home is working around the clock to keep our 500 households and their 525 children safe, fed, and healthy. With access to income, food, and basic needs compromised, the concern is rightfully growing for those experiencing homelessness and housing insecurity. Your donation will directly help those in our community who are most vulnerable to sickness, isolation, hunger, and trauma.

We are collecting the following items to distribute to those most immediately in need in our programs:

Essential Supplies:

Items in high demand include facemasks and PPE, diapers (of all sizes), baby wipes, feminine hygiene products, toiletries, toilet paper, paper towels other cleaning supplies, and essential home goods. Shop from our Amazon Wish list to ship to Heading Home directly, using Amazon Smile to benefit Heading Home as your charity of choice!

Learning Supplies:

Parents are struggling to homeschool their children in shelters, and a number of Heading Home clients have children with a range of abilities and special needs. Help us provide them with essential school supplies like paper, notebooks, pencils, pens, creative supplies, books, and more. Shop from our Amazon Wish List for school supplies and shop Amazon Smile to select Heading Home as your charity of choice!
