Although we can’t accept the donation of used goods at our shelter, your donation of new supplies will make such a difference in the lives of survivors.
Much needed items right now include the following:
- Paper Bowls
- Disposable Spoons
- Disposable Cups
- Body Lotion
- Textured hair care products such as hair oil, deep conditioners and wide-tooth combs
- Underwear in all sizes (primarily women and children)
- Cleaning supplies
- Paper towels
- Toilet paper
- Inflatable mattresses
- Twin-size bedding — especially “beds-in-a-bag” that includes pillowcases, sheets, and a comforter
- Gift cards to Walmart, Kroger, and Target (useful for survivors living in supportive transitional housing)
You can purchase these items and more online here. If you wonder what might be most needed right now or have a great idea for a donation drive, call Reena at 859-519-1911 or complete this short form to send her a note.
Do you accept donations of gently used clothing and furniture?
No. Unless otherwise noted, we can only accept the donation of new goods at our shelter. Gently used clothing and household goods can be made to area Goodwill stores (see map) or Habitat ReStore locations (see map).
Both of these organizations issue vouchers to our organization that, in turn, are distributed to survivors. This process provides survivors with the opportunity to shop for clothing that fits and items they need most.
Why don't you accept used donations at the shelter?
Our shelter just doesn’t have much extra space to store donated goods, and the sorting/organizing gently used donations often requires many hours of staff time.
Partnerships with area Goodwill and Habitat ReStore locations allow our staff and the shelter’s space to be dedicated to safety and healing services for survivors.
When is a good time to drop off my donation of new supplies from your wish list?
If possible, we prefer deliveries be scheduled with our Community Relations Manager, Reena Martin. She can be reached by note or phone call to 859-519-1911. Standard delivery times are Monday – Saturday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Can you pick up my donation?
No, we aren’t able to pick up donated items.
