Donate Items

Central City Concern welcomes in-kind donations from individuals and groups including churches, civic organizations, schools, corporations and more! In addition to the standard needs listed below, we use our e-newsletter and Facebook page to make announcements regarding urgent needs.

Please call us before you bring large items (e.g. furniture), or baby/children's items, or if you are working with a group to organize a donation of many items.

If you are looking for an easy way to donate needed items to us please check out our Amazon wish list here! We also accept items in good used condition.
