Donate Goods

Due to limited storage space at our office, we are unable to accept donations of clothing, and most furniture or household goods. However, you may join our listserv, where we put out requests a few times a month when survivors are moving into new homes and looking for items such as microwaves, couches, or bunk beds.  To sign up for this listserv, please email  We also work in collaboration with Household Goods, Cradles to Crayons and the Global Thrift Store in Waltham, and these organizations may accept donations that we cannot.
