What We Need

DiapersSacred Heart Community Service couldn’t do its job without help from our community, and that’s why your donations are so very important. We currently need donations of the items below. Visit the Donation Station page to learn how you can drop items off at Sacred Heart. Thank you for giving!

  • Financial Donations
    Your tax deductible donation gives Sacred Heart the ability to invest funds in those programs that need it the most. Even a small donation helps. Please consider giving through our online donation page.   
  • Gas cards, Bus Passes or Grocery Cards
    Customers come to our Housing office seeking shelter. If we can help them with housing, the families are often still in need of help with money for transportation and food. These gift cards offer aid to families who are trying to meet the basic needs of life.
  • Food
    Perishable and Nonperishable

  • Recyclables: Egg Cartons, Rubber Bands, and Bags
    We also always need clean and serviceable egg cartons, rubber bands, and paper & plastic grocery bags. Reuse and recycle!
  • Baby Diapers & Formula (Enfamil with Iron)
    We are always in desperate need of diapers and formula at Sacred Heart.  These items are an expense far too great for many new mothers who come to Sacred Heart.
  • Clothing
    Clean and like new clothing, shoes and accessories are accepted.  Professional clothing, men's clothing, men's shoes and blankets are especially appreciated.  Also, backpacks, new adult socks and new adult underwear are very helpful for Survival Sacks.

  • Survival Sack Donations
    We put together Survival Sacks for homeless adult customers and distribute about 100, twice a month. We are often low on many of these supplies and have to give the backpacks out lacking materials. We use all new items: backpacks, full-sized hygiene items (shampoo, soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, combs, and deodorant), small roll blankets, toilet paper, razors, first aid kits, socks, and underwear. Please click here for more information.
  • Office Supplies
    We use a lot of pens in the Welcome Center. Do you have a box of ball point pens? We can put them to use!
