Read carefully on what to do with:
Furniture / Mattresses / Toys / Clothing
Great local resources for used furniture, mattresses, toys and clothing!
For Goodness Sake, a non profit in Plainville, CT., provides free furniture to formerly homeless individuals. Read more including how to donate furniture to them HERE.
Re-Store in Cromwell accepts furniture, but not mattresses. To get more information on donating furniture, click HERE.
Goodwill Industries accepts clean, unbroken toys. Click HERE for a link to their donation information page.
Important Update! SVDM is piloting a new clothing program, in which people donate to Goodwill Industries, and in exchange, Goodwill gives us vouchers for free clothing that we distribute through agency partners. Click HERE to learn more!
Leftovers and Prepared Foods? Yes!
If you have a large amount of commercially prepared leftovers, please bring them to the Soup Kitchen from 7:00 AM – 1:00 PM Monday through Saturday. We’ll see to it that your generosity isn’t wasted! We also take fresh vegetables, meats and seasonings!
If your food is bagged, canned, bottled, jarred or boxed, crated or shrink wrapped, it is needed at the Amazing Grace Food Pantry.
Located at 16 Stack Street in Middletown, the food pantry accepts donations on Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM.
Welcome Home Baskets…
are the finishing touch when we are successful in finding a permanent apartment home for a formerly homeless individual or family. Making them up is a fun family or community project. They help to make someone who has been on the outside for a long time feel less anxious, and more welcome. For a complete list of Welcome Basket items, click here!
