Project Homeless Connect restores dignity and brings comfort to those experiencing homelessness. Support our neighbors by hosting a drive in your community.
Useful for securing belongings as well as trips to school, backpacks are incredibly important at all ages. We have a constant need for adult or camping-sized, new or gently used, fully-functioning, backpacks.
Children’s backpacks, anything in need of repair.
Socks are a key component of both warmth and foot health. We collect new, moisture-wicking white crew socks.
Socks that are used or children’s sizes
Sleeping bags turn a cold night a little warmer. We need new or gently used and clean, fully-functioning, sleeping bags. Please provide a bungee cord if there is no stuff sack or strap.
Children’s sleeping bags
When access to a power source is hard to come by, a portable phone chargers makes life easier. We accept phone chargers, laptops, tablets, and phones. All must be new or gently used and fully functional.
Large or heavy electronics, or items that are in need of repair or missing components.
Help us welcome our participant to their new home with the gift of essential household items. We accept new or gently used electric skillets, mini refrigerators, toasters, microwaves, plates, eating utensils, small pans and more.
