In-kind Donations

Many of our shelter residents arrive with only the clothing they are wearing and no income. We must stock all the cosmetics, underwear and linens to provide for their basic needs. If you can donate any items on these lists please drop them off at the shelter located at 701 South Charles Street or call 410.752.1285.
