In-kind Donations

Basic Needs Items

Our clients face overwhelming challenges on a daily basis. Sometimes, seemingly simple things have a big impact. We accept in-kind donations like diapers and wipes, personal hygiene items, winter clothing items, bedding and linens, bus passes and grocery gift cards.

Giving Programs

Children Helping Children

Children of all ages are generous and many seek to help children in need by contributing their time, talents and resources. These efforts may include tag sales, lemonade stands, walk-a-thon pledges or fundraisers with proceeds benefiting The Village.

Art Angels Program

Community members help make sure children living at The Village – and separated from their families – receive notes of encouragement and feel supported through out the year.

Uniform Program

Going back to school can be an exciting time of year, but many families we serve struggle to afford required school uniforms, which typically cost $30 each. Click the button below to help. Please type UNIFORM in the “add comment” field when you give.

Holiday Giving Tree​

More families than ever are coming to The Village for help—and this holiday season they are feeling the weight of the mental health crisis compounded with high inflation rates. Many face the dilemma of providing their basic needs—like food or rent—or purchasing gifts for their children.

We believe that no family should have to make this choice.

Please give what you can to help provide gift cards for local families in need so they are able to put food on the table, select gifts for their children and truly enjoy “the most wonderful time of the year.”
