You may not think much about your shampoo. You may not worry much when your child loses one of his toys. You may not think twice when you lay down on a soft pillow and clean sheets at night. But what if your family had none of the above?
Why the In-Kind Donation Center?
Our new 2,100 square foot In-Kind Donation Center will be located on-site at Harbor House’s confidential 110-bed Emergency Shelter. It will be housed in a dual-purpose building that includes the Paws for Peace Kennel.
The Center is a long overdue need at our shelter! We are very lucky to have such a caring community that wants to help our residents. Currently, we have little room for storage, meaning much-needed bulk donations are difficult to accept and every-day donations are stored and distributed inefficiently.
About the In-Kind Donation Center
The new In-Kind Donation Center will enable:
- Ability to store many in-demand items enabling quick distribution to those who call our shelter home.
- Ability to seek and accept in-kind donations of items that would otherwise need to be purchased.
- Expanded ability to store a wider variety of items including flatware, pots and pans, strollers or diapers.
These changes result in a better experience for donors and an increased service level for our shelter residents.
Opening is set for Fall 2012.
