Household Essentials Needed!

Save to Favorites

Simpson Housing Services, Inc.


So many items are needed when moving into a new home. People who have experienced homelessness have very few, if any, of these basic supplies. Opportunity Housing Partnership (OHP) is a program that provides housing and support services to adults who have experienced long term homelessness. Help Simpson welcome them to their new home with the supplies they need to set up housekeeping.

This is a great opportunity for a group of colleagues, family or friends or collect one or two items on your own. Make it a theme by collecting items for the bath, kitchen or a good night's sleep or just do a variety of items. Please see the list of needed items below:

Laundry baskets
Twin or full sheets

Bath towels
Hand towels
Shower curtains

Kitchen supplies - pots, pans, cooking utensils, plates, bowls, cups, silverware
Dish soap
Paper towels
Cleaning supplies - spray, wipes

Men's deodorant
Body wash

Bonus items that are not essential but would be nice to provide to the residents:
Bath mats

Please label donations OHP. Please note that due to the pandemic, we are only accepting donations via appointment.

For additional information and to express interest, please reply to this posting or e-mail volunteer@simpsonhousing.org.
