Individuals, churches, and groups provide all the items we distribute. This is done through donations of funds or goods.

Many times, a host will throw a baby shower or housewarming shower to help fill our shelves. Whether you are interested in giving new or gently used items, the following will serve as a helpful guide to know what we accept. Thank you for your participation in this practical way!

Donated Goods Guide

Items in bold are currently low in stock.

We cannot accept adult clothing (except for men's suits).

We no longer accept furniture donations, but encourage you to contact Furniture Friends in Westbrook, Maine if you have items listed on their website.

Please note: All used items must be recently cleaned/laundered and in very good condition (not faded, torn, stained, pilled, etc.).

If you have any questions, feel free to send us a message via the Contact page.
