Although we are a volunteer-driven program, WHO incurs expenses for utilities, groceries, volunteer training materials, and salaries for professional case management staff. Help your community today by making a tax-deductible donation to WHO.

  • $28 meets our weekly costs for one guest.

Donate Physical Goods:

It takes quite a few typical supplies and grocery items to operate the shelter weekly. We invite churches to participate in supply drives for the following list of items for their week of service (if possible).

Supplies: Disinfectant wipes, glass cleaner, plates, bowls, and cups (350), napkins, sandwich bags, brown paper lunch sacks, paper towels and toilet paper, and large black garbage bags.

Groceries:  Kool-aid, cups of soup or mac n cheese, 5 loaves of bread per day, meat and cheese, peanut butter, jelly, lunch size bags of chips, fruit snacks or fruit cups, cookies, cereal, milk, fresh fruit, juice, baked goods.

Hygiene items: Toothpaste, toothbrushes, combs,  unscented small soaps, body lotion,  hand cream, diapers and feminine products.

Clothing: Socks and underwear in a variety of sizes, including plus sizes. 

Unfortunately, there is no storage for clothing, blankets or coats. If you would like to donate these types of items, you are welcome to set up a table at one of the facilities and help hand out needed items to guests. All remaining items must be taken home with you on the same evening.
