Donate Items

Stuff that Matters

Donate items by organizing a collection drive through your work, school, church, or club to help those in need. Or simply give on your own!

Donating items is a great way for individuals or groups to make an impact on families with things that many might take for granted. Whether it’s a basic need like food, hygiene items, and school supplies, or if it’s a specialty item like an Easter basket, turkey, or toy at Christmas; families are incredibly grateful to receive support when hope might be lost.

Year-Round Needs

Throughout the year, Friendly Center uses the donations of food, hygiene items, and school supplies for its various programs. You can collect items that directly impact others.
