Donate cell phones.

We collect used cell phones, which are then refurbished by Verizon and returned to us for clients. For a person or family in emergency transition, a phone can make all the difference in staying safe and obtaining services.

Donate household goods for families starting over.

  • Pots & pans, new condition
  • Flatware
  • Bureaus & dressers
  • Strollers in good condition
  • Kitchen chairs and tables
