Your gift helps families on their journey to safety.Donate Now
When fleeing violence, survivors often leave with very little. While in shelter, your donations allow them to have the items they need to feel out home and meet their own and their children’s needs. When they are able to start their new life, in safe housing free of the abuser, your support gives them the basic supplies and needs for their household.
There are items that survivors and their families need on a regular basis. Some are for daily basic needs and others are to support them in their new home. Below is a list of items we need most often:
Wish List Items
- Baby wipes
- Paper towels
- Toilet paper
- Full size hygiene products (shampoo, conditioner, soap, deodorant)
- Trash bags
- Cleaning Supplies
- Pots and pans
In Kind Donations
In-kind donations are donations of goods, time or services. In-kind donations from our community are an important way ESCADV receives the supplies to provide holistic services to survivors. Donated goods may be new or gently used. Donations of time and services provide additional opportunities for ESCADV to support survivors on their path to safety.
In-kind donations are essential for providing necessary items to our clients. Your donation can assist clients in securing a job, having clothing for their children, and successfully transitioning to a new home, free of abuse. In addition, the financial value of your in-kind donations provide needed matching funds for state grants we receive.
Some examples of in-kind donations that are helpful to ESCADV are:
- Tree maintenance/removal
- Clean clothing
- Household supplies (especially kitchen supplies)
- Baby items
