What we accept
The Emergency Services programs provide the community with food, clothing, and hygiene kits.
We accept donations of easy to open (pop top), non-perishable foods, clothing for men, women, and children, diapers and other infant care necessities, and new travel-size toiletry items. The items are sorted and packaged, and distributed by volunteers on a daily basis.
As the Housing programs connect neighbors to housing, Catholic Charities, in partnership with the Dorothy Day House, furnishes those homes. See their website for a list of items we can and can not accept.
Help your neighbors in need this summer by donating essential items for our Outreach Centers: chapstick with SPF, men’s boxers/briefs, women’s underwear, individual bug wipes, individual sunscreen/travel size, gently used tennis shoes, gently used t-shirts, and jeans. Drop off your donations at 1325 Jefferson Ave., Memphis, TN 38104, Monday-Thursday, 9:00 AM-3:00 PM, or shop directly from our Amazon Wishlist below.
