  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 32 people are interested


Collect and donate the supplies your neighbors need to be successful in stable living! We have a variety of housing teams that help our unhoused neighbors get into a place they can call home. Welcome Baskets support people transitioning from homelessness into their own apartments and homes.

We have a number of off-site housing programs and teams like Housing First, Family Rapid Rehousing, Single Adult Supportive Housing, and more that support individuals transitioning out of homelessness. These baskets provide those individuals with the things they need to get started in a home such as dishes, pots and pans, a broom, etc.

This is a great activity for girl/boy scout troops, family gatherings, faith groups relationship building, or even corporate giving!

Supply List:

  • Laundry basket
  • Sponges
  • Dish soap
  • Laundry detergent
  • All-purpose cleaners and other cleaning supplies
  • Paper towels
  • Toilet paper

Feel free to include bonus items you think might be helpful. You do not need to include everything on this list to make a Welcome Home Basket. However, do your best to attain the bolded items on this list, as many residents may not have any of these when they first move in.

Guidelines and notes (read before assembly):

  • If you include any food products in baskets, note that they must be unopened and prior to their Best By, Use By, or Expiration date.
  • We also accept (and greatly appreciate!) individual donations of each of these listed items. Delivery can be arranged through a drop-off coordinated with Abby (info below) or easily arranged and delivered to us through a third party via our Amazon Wishlist.
  • If you would like toadd any notecards/messages, or items that are not listed above, you must text/call/or email Abby (info below) beforehand to ensure that the Donation Center is able to accept them. Thank you so much!
