Needed Items

We appreciate the incredible generosity of our community. Out of an abundance of caution with the rapidly spreading COVID-19, we are not accepting in-kind donations (i.e., clothing, bedding, toys, furniture, food, etc.) at this time.

Often folks reach out to ask how they can help and what items are most needed for our clients. If you would like to make a non-monetary donation, below is a list of items that would be greatly appreciated.

If you wish to donate something that is not on our list, or if you have a large donation, please call ahead at 814.238.7066. Donations can only be accepted during our business hours of Monday-Friday 9am-5pm, unless otherwise arranged. Please understand we may say “no” to a request as we do not have the need nor the storage space for everything offered to us.
