Your gift today provides life-saving care for people in desperate need—shelter, nutritious food, addiction recovery, and long-term, residential programs. Through your generosity, they can begin new lives. So please, give now… and give generously.
There are a variety of drives from which to choose (i.e. – fundraising, food collection, personal hygiene, linens, Christian literature, Easter baskets, school supplies, Christmas gifts, newborn baby needs, etc.).
We also have an ongoing need for Hygiene Kits. We ask that these Hygiene Kits (made with quart-sized ziplock bags) include the following personal-sized items: shampoo, soap, toothpaste, toothbrush. Optional and appreciated items include: razor, shaving cream, washcloth, deodorant, comb. Hygiene kit donations for our Shelter for Men can be dropped off at our donation drop off location at 205 East New York Street, Indianapolis, 46204.
