In-Kind Donations

 

Your support is both a tremendous encouragement and a critically needed resource in our mission to bring about concrete solutions to end homelessness and poverty in Philadelphia. 

Thank you for considering donating to Project HOME!

As part of our individualized, one-on-one relationship approach, Project HOME does not engage in mass outdoor food distribution to people living on the streets. Project HOME also does not engage in large-scale handouts of clothing or blankets, and cannot advise your group on how to do so.

We are currently in need of the following:

  • Linens - twin sheets, blankets, pillows, pillowcases (must be new)
  • Towels and washcloths (must be new)
  • New warm-weather clothing, such as t-shirts, shorts, and baseball hats (men's and women's)\
  • Backpacks
  • Water bottles
  • Sunscreen
  • Toilet paper
  • Paper towels
  • Body wash

We cannot accept the following:

  • Used bedding and/or blankets
  • Used socks and/or underwear
  • Furniture and large household appliances
  • Toys or baby equipment
  • Computers
  • Perishable food
  • Opened or used toiletries
  • Used books

We apologize, but due to the commitment of staff time involved, we are unable to pick up items unless there is an immediate need and resources are readily available for the pick-up. To schedule a time to drop off items, please call at least one week in advance. No donation will be accepted without a scheduled appointment. For individuals and small groups looking to make an in-kind donation, please e-mail Elle Gordon at ElleGordon@projecthome.org.
