In Kind Gifts
Every year, we reach thousands of people with life-giving help. We provide everything from food, toothpaste and laundry soap to Bibles, shoes and reading glasses. These items are given to the homeless and impoverished in our community FREE of charge. That is a major financial investment.
To help those in need, we rely on the generosity of individuals, churches, businesses, and civic groups who extend their support through in-kind donations. Each item donated by friends like you frees up dollars that can be used to purchase other general fund needs. Businesses can help, too!
Promotional materials, out of date printed material, display samples and other items that have become unusable for their original purposes can greatly benefit our cause.
Food and Consumable Supplies
We always need fresh fruits and vegetables, meat, cheese, dairy, coffee, non-dairy creamer, sugar, instant oatmeal, bottled water and other staples such as Stryo Foam plates, bowles, pastic forks and spoons, cups, trash bags, napkins, etc.
Personal and Hygiene Supplies
Personal items such as disposable razors, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, bath soap, shampoo, blankets, pillows, sleeping bags, feminine hygiene products and vitamins are needed. We are also always in need of large print bibles, Christian reading material, journals and writing supplies.
Men’s and women’s clothes, socks and underwear, jeans, coats, work shoes, and tennis shoes are needed in all sizes (especially men’s sizes 32-38).
Furniture, Household Goods and Major Appliances
Good, clean home furnishings, decor and working major appliances are always in great demand for those coming off the streets and into housing. We have need of your good stuff! Whatever you would normally take to your local thrift store, you can bring to Urban Relics Resale, where we will either use it to furnish apartments or turn your leftovers into funds to run the ministry.
