New Beginnings relies on the generosity of the community to meet its mission, and we welcome donations year-round.  Many of our programs provide meals, hygiene items, clothing, linens, and basic household supplies for the young people we serve.

Please note we do not currently accept other used clothing or linens due to space and cleaning limitations.  The Outreach program may accept certain items at certain times of year – call 795-6831 to inquire about donating used clothing or linens.

If you have other questions or to discuss a donation not listed below, contact Rachel Spencer-Reed, Program Development Director at 207-795-4077.
