Clothing

Is your closet full of good seasonal clothing in great condition which is causing clutter? If so, you have an opportunity to help a neighbor in need by donating your new or gently used items. Our clothing closet serves and average of 50 people a week and is open year round. We're always available to receive additions for house guests in need. Here's a list of our greatest needs for this upcoming season:

  • Men's jeans (sizes 30 -34)

  • Women's underwear (sizes 10 and up)

  • Men and women's sneakers (all sizes)

  • Clear storage bins (80qt)

  • Hoodies (all sizes)

  • Steel toe work boots (all sizes)

  • Winter Boots (all sizes)

Toiletries

At Opportunity House, each guest has access to a full bathroom with showers included. This means toiletries are always needed. Here's a list of our current needs:

  • Toothpaste & toothbrushes

  • Mouthwash

  • Shampoo & conditioner

  • Soap

Each item is essential in making sure all Opportunity House Guests receive a dignified experience.

Hygiene Essentials

We also receive and distribute deodorant, razors, shaving cream, lotion, feminine hygiene products, high efficiency (HE) laundry detergent, and bath towels.

Food

In addition to providing access to bathrooms, clothing, and laundry machines, we also provide good food for guests. 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 Boryardee, Vienna Sausages, hash, etc.)

  • Cheese crackers

  • Granola bars
