Host a Donation Drive

Linens, towels, and blankets are among our family shelters’ greatest needs. We provide new supplies for all incoming residents at our shelters and encourage our clients to keep these items when moving out into their own homes. This means that we are constantly in need of new bedding, towels, and household supplies.


Due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, we have an urgent need for the following items.

*Please note that all donations must be new items. We cannot accept any used items at this time.*

  • Clorox Wipes
  • Masks (cloth, surgical, N95 & KN95)
  • Sanitizing spray – specifically, that provides 12-hour protection from COVID
  • Face Shields
  • Sneeze Guards
  • Gloves – All Sizes
  • Baby Formula
  • Adult incontinence products
  • Regular-Sized Toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant)
  • Baby wipes

Donation Drop-Offs:

We are currently accepting donations by appointment only on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at our administrative offices in Menlo Park. To coordinate a curbside, contact-less donation drop-off, please email Carmen Kapanga at and Lynnelle Bilsey at
