As you transition from summer to fall wardrobes please consider donating unwanted but clean socks, gloves, and hats to Detroit’s homeless. We are open 9am-5pm Monday-Friday if you would like to drop off donations.

What other types of donations would be helpful? Great question!
Consider the following:
Bottled water
Can goods with pull tab tops- proteins, starches, vegetables and fruits (Please check expiration dates)
Hand warmers
hygiene products – (travel size) hand sanitizer, toothbrush, toothpaste, soaps, hand wipes/baby wipes, tissues, lotions, lip balm,
Gift cards for fast food establishments – provides a warm meal , a restroom and a place out of the elements
Socks, hats, gloves, scarves, and ponchos
Blankets
Flashlights
Cereal/protein bars
Candy
Safety scissors
Nail clippers
Back packs
Sweat shirts, winter jackets
Reusable water containers

Food and beverage donations for volunteers on the day of event.

If you were going hiking with this backpack and had the potential of being trapped outside for a couple of days what would you need to not only survive but maintain some level of comfort.
No soft drinks, perishable or products that require preparation.

Thank you!
