Donation Drives

Donation Drives are critical to A New Leaf shelters. They provide the most essential needs for the children, individuals and families residing in A New Leaf's programs.

CURRENT DRIVE: Back to School Supplies

School is right around the corner! We are collecting and distributing back to school supplies to children and families who face financial struggles and are served by A New Leaf's programs. Consider holding a back to school drive at your workplace, at church, or among your family members and friends. We are so grateful for donations of back to school items like highlighters, sharpies, calculators, markers, colored pencils, composition notebooks, or anything else you can think a child might need as the school year starts. School is just weeks away, so please call us today to arrange for your donation. Our Donation Center phone number is 480-464-4648.  

Workplace Donation Drives

You can hold a donation drive at your office or in your business. The donations help the individuals and families in A New Leaf's programs start their journey to independence. You can collect any NEW item, from kitchenware, appliances, linens, non-perishable food, toiletries, and the list goes on. If you have questions or need help brainstorming ideas for promoting the donation drive, please call 480-464-4648.

We Accept NEW Items

A New Leaf's policy is to accept and distribute new items through our Donation Center. We do not accept gently used or worn items. We work with community partners and organizations that do accept gently used goods, and we are happy to refer you to them. Just call us at 480-464-4648.
