In-Kind Donations

Many businesses and organizations, as well as individuals, help New Hope Housing by providing donations of supplies, food, equipment, furnishings and other in-kind donation items that meet residents’ needs or support staff work. Annually over $130,000 of in-kind donations from our many community partners help make our work possible! Thank you!

***We cannot currently provide pickup for large furniture donations. If you have furniture to donate and you can drop it off at a specific location, we ask that you call 703-799-2293  x.27 to determine if there is a current need and when and where it needs to be delivered. We thank you for your gifts and your patience! 

***We currently cannot accept clothing donations***

Some in-kind donations that are always helpful:

  • gently used or new twin sheets, blankets, towels, and washcloths, especially during winter months when the number of residents in shelter increases
  • food donations–large donations for meals at shelters, or smaller donations that can be distributed to residents in transitional housing programs
  • toiletries–deodorant, shampoo, soap, razors, shaving cream, lotion, etc.
  • Cleaning supplies– laundry detergent, bleach, all-purpose cleaner, bathroom cleaner.

There are many other items that may be needed occasionally or during particular seasons, such as:

  • children’s clothing and school supplies as residents prepare for the school year;
  • furniture items of all types and other household items (flatware, dishes, pots and pans) as a family or single resident prepares to move from the shelter to transitional or permanent housing

Many business or community groups combine volunteer service and donations by collecting donated items to meet a special need, for example, a food drive, or back-to-school supplies drive. If your group would like to conduct a special drive, please contact Sami Smyth to see what our current needs are before hosting the donation drive.
