Donated Items and Drives

Thousands of women every year find security, respite and a sense of normalcy in some of our most basic services. We rely on the generosity of individuals, companies and organizations to provide clothing, toiletries and other essential items. You can help us in two ways:

  • Donate Items
    Refer to our list of accepted items and drop-off donations Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

    Important In-Kind Donation News:
    Meeting the emergency needs of our guests is a top priority for Rosie’s Place and we couldn’t do it without you! While we expand our food pantry to better serve our guests, storage space is now limited. We can only accept the following items:
      ·   Winter Coats
      ·   Hats, Scarves, and Gloves
      ·   Food
      ·   Full and travel-size toiletries
      ·   New and gently used bras
      ·   New underwear and socks
    We are not able to accommodate donations of clothing other than the winter needs listed above, at this time. We will be sure to update the community just as soon as our renovations are complete, so please keep visiting this webpage for the most up-to-date information. Thank you for your support this season and all year through!
