Host a Donation Drive

The Homeless Alliance has a long list of donations needs to help guests at our Day Shelter, people we are housing, and folks who our street outreach team is connecting with. If your workplace, school, friends, family, or faith community would be interested in hosting a donation drive, we would love your support!

 

In our experience, donation drives typically work best when they are focused on a limited number of items or a theme. Here are a few examples of helpful donation drives that you could host for the Homeless Alliance.
