Eastern Shore Coalition Against Domestic Violence is the only organization on Virginia's Eastern Shore serving survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence. Donate today and help us continue to provide services like our 24/7 crisis hotline, emergency shelter, courtroom and hospital accompaniment, individual counseling, rape crisis services, housing assistance and so much more.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 at home and meet their own and their children’s needs. When they are able to start their new life, in safe housing free from abuse, your support gives them the basic supplies to get started.
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
- Towels, washcloths and hand towels
- Full and twin size bedding

In Kind Donations
* We are temporaily not accepting all in-kind donations until further notice. Thank you.*
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
