Is your closet cluttered? If so, you have the opportunity to help a neighbor in need by donating your new or gently used clothing. Our clothing closet serves an average of 50 people a week and is open year round. We're always available to receive additions for house guests in need.
At Opportunity House, each guest will have access to a full bathroom with showers included. This means toiletries are always needed.
Toothpaste & toothbrushes
Shampoo & conditioner
Each item is essential toward helping guests to receive a dignified experience.
We also receive and distribute, deodorant, razors and shaving cream, lotions, feminine hygiene products, HE laundry detergent and bath towels.
In addition to providing access to bathrooms, clothing, and laundry machines, we also provide good food for each guest. From chef prepared meals to donated can goods with pop tops, we understand the vital importance of proper nutrition. Our current needs are:
Canned goods with "pop tops" (fruit, ravioli, spaghettio's, Chef Boyardee, Vienna sausages, hash, etc)
Emergency street food (items that don't need to be cooked or refrigerated)
Donations accepted M-Th from 10:00am - 1:00 pm at Opportunity House
