Give In-Kind  

We also welcome in-kind donations of needed items year-round. Many of our programs provide meals, hygiene items, clothing, linens, and basic household supplies for the young people we serve.  

Please contact us if your group would like to sponsor a donation drive: 207-795-4077

Please note that, in general, we do not accept used clothing or linens due to space and cleaning limitations.  The Outreach program may accept certain items at certain times of year; please call 795-6831 with questions about used clothing or linens.
