Clothing Donation Guidelines

Due to limited space and capacity, we can now only accept these items:

  • Clothing (clean and in good condition, any season)
  • New underwear (no pre-worn underwear)
  • Blankets
  • Towels
  • Sheets
  • Gently used books

While we are very appreciative of your donation, we ask that you remove the following items from your donation, as they do not meet our guidelines and we CANNOT accept them:

  • Electronics and appliances
  • Kitchen items (such as dishes, glassware, silverware)
  • Pillows
  • Mattress pads
  • Men’s suits
  • Lamps
  • Furniture and decorative household items
  • Toys

We have to dispose of these items when they are donated, which unfortunately adds to our costs. We work closely with St. Vincent De Paul and highly recommend you contact them about donating these items.

Donations to WayFoward’s Connections Program can be made through our Amazon Wishlist.
