On-Going Needs

There have never been more homeless men, women and children in Massachusetts than there are today. You can make a real difference in the quality of their lives by donating any of the items listed below. Whether you are donating just a few things or planning to organize a collection drive in your office or community, we can always put these items to good use:

Year-Round

Socks
New Underwear (adult sizes for men & women)
Diapers
Toiletries (please nothing containing alcohol, no bars of soap)
Backpacks
$5 to $20 Gift Cards: Target, Dunkin Donuts, McDonalds, Grocery Chains
Phone Cards

While the items above are helfpul year-round, there are certain donations that are best used when the days are warm and the sun is shining or when the weather is frigid and snowy. To help meet these specific needs, please consider making a contribution from the options below:

April-September

Baseball Caps
Sunscreen

October-March

Hats and Gloves
Coats (new or very gently used)
Winter Boots (adult sizes for men & women)

Please note that due to a lack of storage, BHCHP does not accept clothing donations outside of the items listed above. Additionally, because of health care regulations, we cannot accept donations of medications or most medical supplies.
