donation drives & in-kind donations

providing critical resources


gathering community essentials

Donation drives are critical to A New Leaf’s programs. They provide the most essential needs for the children, individuals, and families who are most in need in our 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.
