September Donations Needed

“When you give from the heart, your heart grows!” -Current Resident

It can be easy to forget that your donations are going to real people, real women who need your help. That’s why we ask our residents for a quote monthly that we can add to our donations needed list; it’s a way to connect you directly to the women you’re helping. Everything you send to Hospitality House is for our current and future clients, and there’s nothing sweeter than being able to give a woman the right hairbrush for their hair type , or a sweatshirt that fits just right. More often than not, we’re met with a happy dance when we hand a resident an item she requested! The above quote was given by a resident who was gifted with a wax for her hair. She was provided with the exact product and brand she requested only days after she asked for it. She explained that she needed it to be able to prepare for her job interview with confidence-a job interview which she nailed!

Each donation stands for so much: rest, joy, comfort, peace, empathy, trust, and so much more. Your donations provide that, and we can never thank you enough for it!

Please view the September Donations Needed list below and see if there’s a need you can meet. Remember, once an item is purchased from our wish list in the quantity needed, it disappears from the list.

August Donations Needed 2022

Dependable, compassionate, empathetic, generous, hospitable, INCREDIBLE! That’s how we describe our donors. Each month without fail, we share our needs and begin receiving donations from our list within mere days! Last month, you provided our residents with brand new summer pajamas to stay cool, skincare to help them feel confident, nutritious foods, supplies to help keep their home clean, and so much more. Thank you for being the community they can count on month after month!

Below is our new Donations Needed list for August. Remember, once an item is purchased from our wish list in the quantity needed, it disappears from the list. Let’s aim for an empty wish list this month and show our residents how much they’re cared for!

July Donations Needed 2022

Finally, some Summer weather! The heat and sunshine call for an adjustment to some of our requests. Can you help us supply residents with some cool Summer PJs so residents can beat the heat in the air conditioning, or some sunglasses so our ladies can enjoy being outside?

Thank you for taking care of these wonderful women-it gives them such a boost in confidence to know we have people like you supporting them!

Please see our July Donations Needed list below, and feel free to shop our Amazon wishlist or your favorite retailer. You can even have your items delivered directly to us so you don’t have to leave home!

April Donations Needed 2022

I like to think of Hospitality House as a place where residents can experience the hope and renewal of Springtime year round. Upon entry, each resident receives a new pair of pajamas to give them a fresh start. A new pair of slippers to say, “welcome home.” Toiletries, makeup, and food to help give them stamina and confidence to face the days ahead. It’s amazing what happens to people when they are treated as people and not as an inconvenience or burden. They begin to see the glow within themselves, and their mindset changes from “I’m stuck,” to “I’m almost there, just a little further.”

Donations are not just material possessions, they’re little messages of hope to our ladies. They say, “I see you, I’m here for you, there are better things ahead.”

This month’s donations needed list, as always, is curated based on the needs and requests of clients. Please know that if you donate, you’re giving our residents hope, and that’s no small thing.

Please feel free to shop our Amazon wishlist or your favorite retailer; you can even have your items delivered directly to us so you don’t have to leave home.

March Donations Needed 2022

A common compliment to hear is that homeless individuals are so strong and courageous. It’s true, they accomplish so much with so little. They push on when they’re exhausted and keep fighting. Wouldn’t it be nice, though, if they didn’t have to be strong or fight? If systems didn’t fail them, if abusers faced justice, if mental health issues were addressed differently, if dollars stretched just a little further?

Hospitality House aims to be a place where our residents don’t have to be tough or courageous. Our ladies are welcome to share their fears with us, to cry, laugh, build trust and tear down walls. Sometimes we forget how exhausting it feels when you have to be strong and there’s no other choice. I’m sure many of us have heard that you can’t pour from an empty cup, but that’s precisely what homeless individuals manage to do-they push and they try and they pour from their cups to get a single ounce of relief.

You, our donors, help so much in refilling those cups. You give these women a chance to rest, and a safe space to just exist. Thank you for allowing our women to be something other than strong or courageous. Thank you for letting them be who they are, and supporting them so they can simply be.

Below you’ll see the list of donations needed for March. If you feel compelled to help our present and future residents, please feel free to shop our Amazon wishlist or your favorite retailer, you can even have your items delivered directly to us so you don’t have to leave home.
