Summer Care Needs

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Simpson Housing Services, Inc.


Help provide Simpson Housing’s Emergency Homeless Shelter with supplies for the hot summer months! Each night 66 single adults sleep at the shelter and we offer basic needs for everyone on their first night, then throughout their stay. These basic supplies are crucial to making sure that guests feel comfortable, healthy, and safe. Lead a donation collection that will provide those items. This is a great opportunity for families, small groups or individuals.

Many groups will choose a few specific items that they will collect, others will advertise a full list of all supplies needed. Items to be collected:

  • Socks
  • Toothbrush
  • Toothpaste
  • Bottle of water
  • Flavoring for water/electrolyte packets
  • Non-perishable snack (like a soft granola bar)
  • Baseball cap (soft bendable caps are best)
  • Sunscreen
  • Rain ponchos
Simpson is happy to supply you with information to bring additional meaning to the project. A wonderful opportunity to learn more about homelessness, Simpson's work and Adult Shelter Connect.

We are currently accepting in-person donations by appointment only. When you have your items collected, visit our donation scheduler at for donation times and drop off location information.

For additional information and to express interest, please contact Katelyn Jaksha, Volunteer Coordinator at
