Questions

Why are sheets in high demand?
Everyday basic needs like sheets are universally needed by the variety of populations that we serve. Refugees and foster children especially often arrive in new households without the basics. Others that we serve have worn, threadbare sheets that haven't been replaced in many years. Having a clean bed with fresh sheets can make a huge difference in wellbeing to seniors in poverty. 

What kind of sheets should we collect?
New twin, full, and queen sized sheets. 

Where should we bring our donations?
Contact us to schedule your delivery.

Can we donate related items like pillows, bedding, and mattresses? Can we donate used sheets?
We are not equipped to launder, contaminate, and distribute used bedding items. At this time our greatest need is new Twin, Full, and Queen sized sheets. Click here to see a wish list of other items that are highly needed.
