How to Donate
Please donate items that are in good to excellent
condition. Our goal is to help families start anew with dignity
We don't mean to be "picky" - it's simply that
we have seen for years now what the families we serve need
and what they rarely select. Thank you for helping us serve
our neighbors in need!
You can schedule a pick-up or drop off items seven days/week at our Center for Community Service in Silver Spring, MD: Monday - Saturday 9:00 - 6:00; Sunday 12:00 - 6:00.
Items that are most needed for the Neighbor-to-Neighbor Program include the following:
Beds (mattresses, box springs, & frames) - Almost every family that we serve needs beds. Please donate only those that are without rips or stains.
Dressers - as with beds, almost every one of our families needs dressers.
Kitchen tables and chairs - families prefer sets (single kitchen or dining room chairs rarely find homes).
Baby items - strollers, highchairs, changing tables, cribs, car seats, infant and toddler clothing
End tables and coffee tables
Sofas - as long as they are in great shape
Televisions - with remote, and color and cable-ready are best
Lamps - with shade
Kitchen items - sets of dishes, silverware, pots & pans, toasters and microwaves
Fans & Air Conditioning Units - these often go into
the homes of low-income seniors for whom they may be
life-saving. Please ensure that they are in good working
order and are cleaned/dusted.
New cleaning products - detergent, dish soap, household cleaners
Vacuum cleaners - as long as they are models for which families can still buy the required bags
Towels - all sizes are needed
Bedding - comforters, blankets, and sheet sets
Plastic comforter bags - with the zippers, to help us keep the bedding clean
Rope - our clients often need rope to tie items down for transport
Baskets - the diameter of a basketball or larger, please.
- Men's and Women's Professional Attire - suits, ties, new shoes, dress shirts, dress pants, briefcases, handbags and business accessories. Click here for more information.
