Safe Haven accepts in-kind donations of items our families can use in either the shelter program or as they move into transitional and permanent housing.
Unfortunately we cannot accept all donations. Please consult our needs/wish lists below before donating as these are the only items we can take at this time. Due to storage, we have to limit donations to only that of which we deem current needs. We appreciate your generosity as well as your understanding of our needs and storage. (Please note that we are no longer accepting donations of clothes due to lack of storage space.)
Below the “current needs list,” you will find a link to our Amazon wish lists. Please refer to those wish lists to see the types of items that we need. It is great when donors purchase items online and have them sent to our shelter. We also accept donations in person (drop off) by appointment only. This ensure someone is present and can assist you in accepting the donations. Please click here to schedule a time to donate items.
If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 615.256.8195
Current Needs List
FURNITURE: With families moving to housing, we often need items like kitchen tables, dressers, chairs, floor lamps, etc. Before donating, we need a picture of the item(s) sent to email@example.com.
GIFT CARDS: We appreciate gift cards to Target, Amazon.com and other stores that carry items we frequently need. Gift cards allow us to purchase needed items, cut down on storage of items and allow us to give them to families to pick out their own items.
GAS CARDS: Gas gift cards are a great way to support a Safe Haven family. We can give these out to families to help with the cost of gas.
LINENS: Beds-in-a-bag are ideal (twin and full). We need: twin and full size sheet sets, twin (appropriate colors for kids) and full size (appropriate colors for adults) comforter sets, pillows, wash cloths, bath towels and kitchen towels.
