Donate Goods

To fully serve the nearly 2,000 women who come through our doors each year, the Village relies on donated items from our community. All donated items are distributed free of charge to the women who use our services.

In-Kind Gifts 

N Street Village accepts fully functioning, gently used,* and new in-kind gifts based on the needs of our community. Gifts include donated goods like gently used clothing, new toiletries, etc. In-Kind Gifts are accepted by appointment only Monday through Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.. We are not able to accept in-kind gifts without first contacting the In-Kind Gifts Office. Due to staff and transportation limitations, we are unable to pick up donations and appreciate your delivery of items.

Contact Donna-Marie Thompson at dthompson@nstreetvillage.org to schedule a drop off time or for additional donation assistance.

*Due to sanitation regulations we are only able to accept NEW underwear, bedding, towels, washcloths, and unopened makeup. We DO NOT accept furniture, children’s clothing, children’s toys, or mattresses.
