Donate Items

Thank you for your interest in donating items!  We are fortunate and grateful to have frequent generous offers of items to be donated.  Due to logistical constraints, we are typically only able to collect donated items when we have a specific need from a family or are setting up an apartment for a new arrival.  When we have items that we know are needed, we will post a sign up sheet below.  Please check back often to see which items are needed.

Basic Needs Donations

One of our Asylee families has finally found a home!! A mother who was separated from her then 3 year old son at the border and reunited last summer has finally secured stable housing. Her legal case is progressing well and they are so close to finally being able to put down roots and begin their journey here.  As you can imagine due to the political climate and everything they went through to get here, and since they’ve been here, it has been a tumultuous year for them.  Thank you for helping us make them feel safe and secure.  Delivery will be to Lincroft, NJ. Exact address will be emailed after you sign up.
