donate items

how you can help your community through in-kind donations


help those in crisis by donating items

You can make a direct impact in your local community by donating items such as food, household goods, and more. Every donation will go directly towards helping a family overcome homelessness, helping a survivor of abuse find safety, and so much more. A New Leaf relies on generous people like you to help feed, clothe, and support those most in need in your community.

We cannot accept gently used or worn items. We work with local community organizations that do accept gently used goods, please find our list of partners here.
