Urgent Needs

You can help our clients by donating items they most urgently need from the sources below.

Please read our Dignity in Donations blog post before donating items for our clients.

Ongoing Donation Needs

When our newest clients move from emergency shelter or the streets into permanent housing, their joyful celebrations are often tempered when they realize all of their personal belongings fit into a single trash bag. They are often overwhelmed by their lack of basic household necessities to cook, clean, and furnish their new apartment.

You can alleviate the stress of starting a new home by donating a whole move-in kit or any quantity of the items listed below.

All items must be new and full-sized.

  • Toiletries:  deodorant, toothbrush & paste, soap, shampoo, unopened packages of menstrual hygiene products
  • Cleaning:  all-purpose cleaner, cleaning wipes, broom & dustpan, sponge, dishwashing soap, laundry detergent
  • Household:  queen sheets, queen blanket/comforter, bath towel & washcloth, pillow & pillowcase, 10 hangers, laundry basket
  • Babies & children:  baby wipes, diapers, diaper cream, toddler snacks, art supplies

You can even organize a collection drive with your co-workers, congregation, family and friends. Contact volunteer@mcch.net for ideas on how to get started!
