In-kind donations

Donating new and gently-used supplies and goods helps Bridges meet some basic needs of the families in our programs. An updated list of client needs is available on our website. Donations can be dropped off at Sullivan House and receipts are available.

Due to limited storage space, we cannot accept donations of clothing, shoes or furniture, except on an as-needed basis by families who are transitioning into their own homes. If you are looking to donate furniture, clothing or household items, please contact Lawson Craighill at (703) 525-7177, Ext. 135.
